Math Tricks – How to Remember Pi

What is pi?  Can’t remember pi beyond 3.14?  That’s OK. because there are math tricks to help you remember.  My favorite is this mnemonic:

“How I need a drink, alcoholic of course, after the heavy lectures involving quantum mechanics.”

Each word contains the number of letters for the digit that belongs in that word’s place.  For instance, replace “How” with “3”, “I” with “1”, etc.

Using this math trick, we get:

3.14159265358979

Of course, you can make up your own mnemonic; if you do, please post your ideas here!
