Celebrate Pi Day!

Pie with digits of Pi

It’s the only holiday to honor a number: Pi Day, on 3-14, the beginning digits of the infinite, non-repeating decimal expansion of pi = 3.1415926…  This important number is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, but pi is also irrational and transcendental — and humans have known about it for thousands of years.  So, join the Jackson College Mathematics & Engineering Department in our celebration of an incredible number, symbol, and concept!
