What is Pi Day?

Pi Day is mathematical holiday that is typically celebrated on March 14th since the decimal approximation of pi begins with 3.14 which corresponds to the 3rd month and 14th day of the month.

Fun Fact – March 14th is also Albert Einstein’s birthday. I always think that is such a fun coincidence.

If you want a full guide to celebrating Pi Day with your math students, I suggest checking out my Pi Day Celebration Guide. It is full of links to pi day activities, pi day puzzles, and much more pi-related fun such as the Pi Symbol Pentominoes Puzzle, 3-1-4 Pi Day Number Challenge, or the Pi Day Square Puzzle.

Puzzle Solutions

I intentionally do not make answers to the printable math puzzles I share on my blog available online because I strive to provide learning experiences for my students that are non-google-able. I would like other teachers to be able to use these puzzles in their classrooms as well without the solutions being easily found on the Internet.

However, I do recognize that us teachers are busy people and sometimes need to quickly reference an answer key to see if a student has solved a puzzle correctly or to see if they have interpreted the instructions properly.

If you are a teacher who is using these puzzles in your classroom, please send me an email at with information about what you teach and where you teach. I will be happy to forward an answer key to you.
