Pi is the name of the symbol used by mathematicians to denote the ratio between a circle's circumference and diameter!

Pi jokes and puns are part of corny math jokes. Along with pi jokes, maths jokes also include calculus puns and jokes, number puns and number jokes, square puns, and circle jokes!

The number pi is irrational in nature but is of major significance in the math world. Although being a recurring decimal amounting to approximately 3. 14 or 22/7, it used in many calculations in geometry, trigonometry, mensuration, and many other higher topics in math. You'd never guess how important it is from the adorable name and symbol!

Now, puns and jokes about pi can also be interpreted in a different way. Because it is phonetically similar to the word pie, a pi joke is interchangeable with many pie jokes and pie puns. Furthermore, very smartly many jokes about pie can be turned into circle puns! Along with that, there is an opportunity for a pi pun to be made from pi day puns, pi day quotes, pi day jokes, and puns about numbers in general. Pi Day is usually held on the 14th date of the third month of the year that is March. This corresponds to the approximate value of pi as well:3-14.

Now, as we promised, we will not go on forever. Let's head straight for the Pi jokes and pun that you can tell anyone on Pi Day!
