Why is pi important to science? Well we know most surfers and skaters love a good pizza pi, but did you know that if you divide the circumference of a wheel on a skateboard by its diameter and you get 3.14 (known as pi in the science world).
The same works when you divide the circumference of the planet Mars by its diameter and you get 3.14. Divide the circumference of the known universe by its diameter — you get the point. As one mathematician put it, "Pi is part of the nature of the circle."
