### Pi Trivia Game – Do You Know These Pi Fun Facts?

Today is March 14, 2015. In many places in the world, we might write today's date as 3/14/15. That order of numbers sparks quite a bit of enthusiasm among the math gurus because it perhaps reminds them of pi, denoted by the Greek letter π. It is an irrational number often used in geometry and trigonometry that begins with 3.14159 but this number that could go on into infinity is typically rounded to 3.14.
