Happy Pi Day!


March 14 is International Pi Day, and to celebrate with our friends at Homework Help we thought we'd share this photo of a Dufflet Pecan Pie with chocolate and caramel drizzle because math is sweet!

Pi Day celebrates math worldwide and is a math reference to the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, 3.14.

Homework Help is a government funded resource providing free online math help and live tutoring to Ontario students in grades 7-10. Please take a look at their Facebook page  and their Twitter feed for more info on their activities.

And you should also have a delicious slice of pie - it's the smart thing to do!
