It's March 14, sometimes abbreviated 3-14, and for mathematicians today's date is significant. That's because it matches the commonly-used value of pi, a mathematical constant representing the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. Pi is irrational, which means it goes on forever without end. Sometimes you see it written out to 3.1415927, and other times it might be written out to 3.14159. Still other times you might see it as 22/7, but it's most common form is 3.14, which matches today's date. Pi shows up in many of the American School's math courses. We have something for every skill level, starting with Essential Math 1 and working our way up to Calculus, and many of our math courses are available in entirely online formats. We can't guarantee and you'll find all of our math courses to be as easy as pie, but we do hope that you'll find them beneficial as you work toward your accredited high school diploma!
