PI Day Jokes: Most Popular

I have to confess that until today I’d never heard of Pi jokes, but it seems today March 14, is National Pi Day, which celebrates the mathematical constant of Pi. The holiday was made official last year when the House of Representatives passed a resolution about it.

The mathematical constant of Pi is defined as being the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter or alternatively the ratio between a circle’s area and its radius squared, and it approximately equals 3.14159. This equation is the reason that National Pi Day is celebrated on March 14, because of the first three numbers, 314.

Pi jokes therefore are a means of teaching the concept of Pi to students and most of the jokes are founded on puns about pies and seem to be incredibly corny, but if they capture the attention of student’s that has to be a good thing.
