    Square Root Day!

    (AP) A rare event is upon us, touted by math fanatics as Square Root Day.

    The holiday, which only occurs nine times each century, falls on Tuesday this time 3/3/09 (for the mathematically challenged, three is the square root of nine).


    The last such day was five years ago, Feb. 2, 2004, which coincided with Groundhog Day. The next is seven years away, on April 4, 2016.
