PI Day Today For whatever reason, most of us are aware of PI.        Mostly we just think of it as that number that goes on and on forever, with no end or solution. And we just know it as 3.14. When and why do we learn about it in life? What good does it ever do us? There’s certainly a lot more to it… For instance, it’s a “constant” ratio in circles. And, it’s an “irrational” number. They teach us that, too. Maybe that stuff sticks with us. Maybe not. For most of us, just knowing the …
