He also gave a recipe of the apple pie.

How to celebrate Pi Day?

The dessert is visible right in Google's Doodle, baked by award-winning pastry chef Dominique Ansel, who popularized the Cronut and other sweet treats in his bakeries throughout New York, Los Angeles, London, and Tokyo.

Historically, the first Pi Day was held at a San Francisco Science Museum in 1988 when the physicist looked at the calendar and made a decision to pay homage to the mathematical entity.

Google Doodle celebrates the 30th anniversary of pi.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Princeton Universities have devised their own unique ways to celebtate the day. For instance, there are astounding formulae in which smaller and smaller numbers add up to pi and one of the earliest such infinite series to be discovered says that pi equals four times the sum 1 - 1⁄3 + 1⁄5 - 1⁄7 + 1⁄9 - 1⁄11 + ⋯. Shaw organized the first celebration of π at the San Francisco Exploratorium science museum and of course chose March 14 because it corresponds with 3.14. The Doodle represents Pi's mathematical formula-the ratio between a circle's circumference to its diameter-in pie form. Mathematicians classify pi as an irrational number whose decimal value extend to infinity, how ever for most calculation its approximate value as 3.14 is used.

As for the symbol of Pi π, a Welsh mathematics teacher by the name of William Jones is believed to have been the first to use it.

Pi is also a source of inspiration for competitions, where participants have to recite as many decimals of the number as possible.

Pi is a fundamental element of many mathematical fields, but most significantly Geometry.
