Pi Day 2016

Posted on Updated on

Pi Day is celebrated on March, 14th (3.14 … you know what I mean). It’s a celebration of the mathematical constant π. For this day, people cook pie and eat them at 1:59 pm (as  π=3.141592 … you still know what I mean).

Last year (2015) Pi day had a double signification because the year was taken into account as the day always is. So we obtain 3.14.15. Then, we had a triple effect at  9:26:53 am as π=3.141592653 …

In some universities, teachers plan activities to enrich and deepen students’ culture about the constant π. Activities might include investigations of the value of π, special π-projects and parties with pizza or other kinds of ‘pi’.

In SCAN we celebrates Pi Day at 1:00 pm under a shiny sun and the SCAN First students are in charge of organizing it. Other SCAN students and SCAN teachers can bring pie or other goodies to eat. It’s a real convivial moment between the whole SCAN section.

Last ‘MindBlowning fact’: Pi Day happens to be the same day as Albert Einstein’s B-day! MindBlown *o*! So March 14th is a perfect day to plan maths challenges and/or do fun stuff with maths …
