What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day and Pi Day than with a poem – and just in time for World Poetry Day on 21st March too!
Well actually it’s a Piem! A fun way to explore the digits of Pi (π).
Here’s a quick reminder of what Pi and a Piem are:
Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference (the distance around the circle) to its diameter (the distance from one side of the circle to the other). Pi is constant, that means it’s always three and ‘a bit’!
A piem is a poem using words with 3141592653589323846 letters (in that order!) – that’s the digits in Pi to 20 decimal places.
