March14R Squared

There’s no way around this, I have to mention that today is Pi Day! You know 3.14 etc.  To celebrate you should take a look back at Pi Days from yore here as there are some great facts and information embedded in those posts. You will even find the Daily Buffet’s own mathematical formula for success.

And shoot, we should also look forward, as next year’s Pi day will be awesome, as we will be able to celebrate with so much more accuracy.

Do you see that?  3/14/15 9:26:53  Yes, for two seconds next year math people will be hysterical.

Speaking of circles as we ride this one around another time, let us stop and remember the One who set all of this in motion, and even created those fascinating laws of mathematics.

21 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He sits enthroned above the circle of the earth, Isaiah 40:21-22

Oh and one bit of math more, the marble count for 2014 – 11 out, 41 to go!

Pi Day 2012

Woot woot, its Pi Day.  I am not sure I can beat the creativity I discovered in last years post, so you may want to read it again!  Nonetheless, I will try my hand at Pi Day this year.

Did you know that the Bible references Pi?  Yeah back in 1 Kings,

23And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about

30/10 = 3.  It’s an approximation, but such that a cubit is an approximation as well, it may have been more accurate than we think!

You some other great facts and information about the favorite constant of mathematicians everywhere here.

And to close out, I decided to check out a 3:14 verse from Proverbs, which happens to say

14 for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold. Proverbs 3:14 New International Version (NIV)
Who is the she, the proverb refers to?  Wisdom.  hm, that seems proper today.  Give that some thought, and eat some Pi, and enjoy the day.

Pi Day

Alright, its Pi Day! What is that?  Well its March 14, or 3/14 or 3.14 — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.  I am so certain that all of you remember Pi times R squared -right?

Well what to do?  How should we celebrate this glorious day of mathematics?  Check out this page for some interesting facts.

On this day that we celebrate Pi and things mathematical, I think that is only correct to have a verse or two that  express simple formulas and demonstrate arithmetic operations.

33″But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:33 (New American Standard Bible)

subtraction:

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29 (New International Version, ©2011)

And finally multiplication:

2May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you. Jude 1:2 (New American Standard Bible)

I think that last one will make a great formula for a successful and fun way to celebrate Pi day.

Let M = Mercy, P = Peace, L = Love and U = you. Therefore:

GreatPiDay = ((M+P+L)*U)^Spirit
