The lowercase Greek letter \(\pi\) is used to indicate the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, an irrational constant whose value is approximately \(3.1415\). Since \(\pi\) is close to \(3.14\) and \(3/14\) is March 14 in the American calendar math enthusiasts have chosen this day to honor \(\pi\). The holiday is known as Pi Day or \(\pi\) Day.
Due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus our event for Pi Day 2020 was canceled. We were sad to lose this chance to connect with the wider university community. We will return with a new event in the spring of 2022.
