March 14th is Pi Day!
Today is also the birthday of Albert Einstein (1879-1955).
Pi is the irrational number π = 3.1415926535…
The first three digits of pi coincide with the U.S. mm-dd-yy date format of 3/14 for Pi Day.
Pi is calculated as the circumference of a circle, divided by its diameter.
Celebrate Pi Day by drawing circles with this online spirograph tool! “Inspirograph”
These circle designs are called hypotrochoids. A hypotrochoid is a curve drawn by rolling one circle around inside another stationary circle.
My Spirograph Drawing:
What shapes can you make? Creating the different shapes reminds me of cutting out snowflakes.
