Here is a good way to remember the first 7 digits of pi:

**How I Wish I could calculate Pi**

Write this down on a piece of paper. “How” has three letters, then place a dot like this:

3.

Now count the letters of the rest of the words in “How I wish I could calculate pi” and write them down after the dot:

3.141592

Those are the first 7 digits of pi, which goes on and on forever…

I got this tip from reading this book in the bookstore over lunch:

i before e (except after c)

Need more digits?

Here is website that has a mnemonic for the first 402 digits:
