Nerd Alert! If you’re a math fanatic, you probably already knew that today, 3.14, is Pi Day! If you didn’t, then you probably didn’t spend most of your high school years being thrown into a locker or getting swirlies in the bathroom. And probably went on a date. And moved out of your parent’s house before the age of 25. (We, uh… didn’t realize it was actually Pi Day. One of our friends told us! Yeah, that’s it!)
In any event, to celebrate Pi and all of it’s never-ending glory, we’ve put together a list of educational products that makes learning math fun and not-so-complicated and boring.
