Yes, I’ll admit that when I first wrote “Pi(e)”, I thought of π times e even though I meant “Pi/Pie”.
Anyways, as Pi Day approaches, I thought I’d put up a post that collects some of the best pi(e) references out there. For those who are awaiting news on Pi Day, I hope this will be a fun diversion for you as you wait. And for those who are not awaiting such news, here are some fun pi(e) references!
From yesterday’s Today’s Big Thing:
And, of course, the Pi Song:

So, feel free to post your favorite pi/pie reference(s) in the comments below and I’ll add them in! Do you have a favorite pi song? Or, you could make your favorite flavor of pie and send in a picture (mine’s pumpkin)! Or you could try making a pie in the shape of pi while singing your favorite pi song and reciting the digits of pi…the possibilities are endless…
