In 2009, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.Res.224 – Supporting the designation of Pi Day, and for other purposes.
“Whereas Pi can be approximated as 3.14, and thus March 14, 2009, is an appropriate day for ’National Pi Day’: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives—
- supports the designation of a ’Pi Day’ and its celebration around the world;
- recognizes the continuing importance of National Science Foundation’s math and science education programs; and
- encourages schools and educators to observe the day with appropriate activities that teach students about Pi and engage them about the study of mathematics.”
