Today we are celebrating Pi Day at the Mandrier Group. We are celebrating with Pi t-shirts, books about Pi, Pi math problems and of course, pie!
As a math and computer science major, I am excited to see people get involved in holidays that celebrate the world of mathematics. In this case I’m sure it has a lot to do with the inclusion of pie in Pi day, but nevertheless, I’ll take it!
Pi is such an interesting concept – just think about it – every circle in the world can be defined by π = C/d. And the even though every circle can be measured with Pi, Pi is an irrational number with infinite number of digits and with no repeating pattern. The juxtaposition of the ability to measure every perfect circle while not being able to be truly defined itself is fascinating to me. Just one of the many reasons that I became a math major, I suppose!
Enjoy Pi day today, do a few math problems for fun and don’t eat too much pie!
