# Pi Day Giveaway

I’m a geek in a house full of geeks. And we are not too proud to admit it. We celebrate our dorkiness and revel in the fact that one day each year we can proudly say “it’s our day!” and this year, we are once again celebrating with a Pi day giveaway. That’s because our big day is not the anniversary of the first Big Bang Theory or Bill Gate’s birthday, it’s March 14… or Pi Day (3.14, get it?).  It’s a legit national holiday folks.

Around the country there are celebrations, such as Einstein look-alike contests, pie-throwing at schools – typically Math teachers after students have memorized a whole lot of Pi, and the mailing of acceptance letters at the holy grail of geekdom, MIT.

By the way, for those who, also like me, have forgotten middle school math, Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to the diameter. Meaning, for any circle, you can divide the circumference (the distance around the circle) by the diameter and always get exactly the same number. And that number is irrational… which means it never ends. {yes, Chloe, I googled that!}

The giveaway: we have 2 t-shirts to give away (pictured above) from the super-nice geeks at ThinkGeek. This treasure trove of loveable geek paraphernalia is letting us give away 2 of these adorable navy blue 100% cotton babydoll t-shirts. They are fitted, not baggy like the guys’ tees, with a Pi symbol printed on the front in white using the first 4493 digits of Pi used to construct the Pi symbol itself. That’s a whole lot of Pi. Enough for everybody to share.

To enter, leave a comment telling us which of the following you’ve done, along with your email. Each counts as a separate entry, so you get up to 4 entries if you’re doing the math. We’re giving away 2 shirts so there will be TWO winners!

2. Follow us on Bloglovin’ (heart icon) & tell us below

Entries close 3/13 at midnight EST. Two winners will be chosen by random number generator on 3/14.

CONTEST CLOSED. WINNERS NOTIFIED.

My favorite Math teacher: my 7th & 8th grade math teacher, Missy Roberts, who just happens to be my mother…who just happened to introduce me to pi day, who just happens to organize it at shiver elementary/ middle school in Cairo Georgia. Even now that I’m in highschool SW still gives me a price of the pie.

My favorite math teacher was Mr. Skilton in high school. I loved geometry and he was so nice and really helped with personal drama outside of the classroom. I often wonder how he is. I would like to tell him what I remember of him. Plus I remember the report I had to do on Euclid for his class. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

It is hard to remember that far back……Mrs Kathrens was pretty cool for an old lady. I think all of my teachers were 100 years old!

• Autumn Carriker

I loved Mrs. Atwater. She was a great teacher. I went to a small private school, so she taught us other subjects as well, but she really helped me grasp math. Thanks for the chance!

I had Mrs. Stinner for calculus for two years in a row. She was always patient, good at explaining things more than one way, and a fantastic female role model.

• Nori S

This shirt is amazing!
My favorite math teacher was Dr. Elder. I took him for all three of my college calculus courses. He was always patient and willing to spend the extra time needed to explain something many times if necessary. Once, when 75% of the students skipped class, he piled us all into his car (which happened to be a hearse!) and took us for donuts.

I loved math but had a horrible math teacher in Junior High School who pretty much stuck to the guys when it came to help, however, my college professor when I took the chance with calculus was wonderful! I don’t remember his name, but he reminded me of the tv show Stand and Deliver!

My favorite math teacher was my father; I was home schooled. I guess he did a good job because my favorite subject in college was calculus and I have an accounting degree. Good job, Dad.
