Happy Pi Day

By Communications Office Fri, March 14, 2008

Don't get it? "For fans of numerical information or the history of mathematical discoveries," writes poetry blogger Edward Byrne, "March 14 represents a day of celebration. Since the date may be written as 3-14, the digits correspond with 3.14, the opening series of digits associated with 'pi.' (The pi moment during the day is at 1:59, more fully reflecting the start of pi: 3.14159.) This irrational number—one that never can be stated exactly because its decimal sequence continues to infinity—always has amazed mathematicians and held a primary position of curiosity for many non-mathematicians."
