pi!

It’s Pi Day! As everyone knows, the mathematical constant pi is (approximately) 3.14 — and today is 3/14.  A closer approximation of pi is 3.1415, but we’ll have to wait three years for 3/14/15. If you want an even closer approximation, visit PiDay.org and get a million digits of pi…  And who doesn’t want a million digits of pi?

To celebrate this auspicious (and delicious) day, you could look for some books and videos about the mathematical pi or you could read the award-winning novel, Life of Pi, or you could find a recipe for pie in one of the Mudd’s many cookbooks….

Or you could finish your finals, grade that last paper, and go outside to enjoy the 70-degree weather…
