February – May 2014
Caldwell College 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.
Math faculty will kick off Caldwell College’s celebration on Pi Day Eve, March 13 at 11:00am in the Library lobby. At noon, pop artist Michael Albert [http://www.michaelalbert.com] will deliver an original Pi Day puzzle and speak about his Pi art in the Main Reference Room. The festivities will continue through Friday, March 14 with Math faculty leading games, activities and challenges in the Library lobby. All are welcome to join the celebration!
