Today is Square Root Day. That's because it's 03/03/09 - 3 times 3 equals 9. Get it?
The most recent Square Root Day was Feb. 2, 2004...2 times 2 equals 4.
Ron Gordon, a Redwood City, Calif., high school teacher, created the first Square Root Day for 9/9/81. In addition, his daughter has got in on the act and set up a Facebook page for people to share how they were celebrating the day.
Isn't exponential math fun?
How do you celebrate Square Root Day? Do you watch "Hollywood Squares" and listen to Rusted Root? Do you eat root vegetables and do math? The next Square Root Day is April 4, 2016.
