Pi Day Celebration Tomorrow!

We love Pi Day! Traditionally Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 (3/14), but since the students are on Spring Break that day, we’re celebrating a week early. Stop by the Engineering Library to get a FREE apple pie bite made by a local bakery while supplies last. 

Here are a few pi facts to get you excited for our favorite holiday:

  1. Because the exact value of pi can never be calculated, we can never find the exact area or circumference of a circle. 
  2. Albert Einstein was born on March 14th, 1879, but Pi Day was not celebrated until over 100 years later in 1988.
  3. Welsh mathematician William Jones was the first person to use the symbol for pi but it was popularized by Leonhard Euler (known for Euler’s number)
