Just wishing you all a happy pi day. 3/14/16 turned into decimal form (3.1416) rounds pi nicely to the nearest ten-thousandth.
This is much catchier than wishing everyone a happy “Ides of March eve”, which just sounds dreadful.
www.pidaychallenge.com/ makes for some entertaining mathematical puzzling.
www.expii.com is worth a look too with various problem solving sets in math and science set up by Carnegie Mellon math professor Po-Shen Loh, National Coach of the USA International Math Olympiad team.
Georgia Tech hosts a pi mile road race, which has run since 1975, and is actually a 5k (3.1068 miles, not 3.14159265… miles) since a change in 2002. This is, confusingly, not run on pi day, but toward the end of April. A portion of the course is on the Tyler Brown Pi-Mile Trail on campus dedicated to a former student government president and military serviceman killed in action in Iraq in 2004.
Enjoy the festivities, wherever you may be!
