Happy Pi (π) Day!

Who doesn't love pi, or π (or pie for that matter)? On March 14 (which can be written 3/14) we celebrate the world's most famous irrational number, so central to geometry, trigonometry, calculus, Fourier Analysis... you name it. If it's mathematical, it needs more π. This number's popularity, and the mysteriousness of being irrational, transcends mathematics. Check out some of these great items from the Mad Scientists of Etsy, which celebrate pi!
