Caldwell University will celebrate its first Pi Day on March 13-14 in the Jennings Library. Pi is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Whatever the size of a circle, when its circumference is divided by its diameter the result is always 3.14159–known as pi. Most famously celebrated by Princeton University, Pi Day became a national event in 2009 when the House of Representatives officially recognized it through Resolution 224. The goal of Pi Day is to increase math understanding among the American public.
