Pi, the mathematical constant approximately equal to 3.14, is observed nationwide March 14 because of the date's numerical significance. As part of Raytheon's MathMovesU® initiative, the company celebrates Pi Day to highlight the importance of pi calculations in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) – and to thank teachers for inspiring the next generation of innovators. Raytheon is sweetening the observance of Pi Day and STEM teacher recognition with the apple pie deliveries, local activities and distribution of virtual Pi Day badges. The company is inviting everyone to share the celebration at https://www.facebook.com/mathmovesu.

Pi Through The Ages

The earliest written approximation of pi dates back some 4,000 years. An ancient Greek mathematician from Syracuse later discovered the first three digits of pi. Do you know his name? For the answer and more fun facts about pi, check out Raytheon's infographic: "Happy Pi Day."
