We have “rounded” up a few reads in celebration of Pi Day celebrated all over the world on March 14th (3/14).
Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.
Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.”
Libraries of all types celebrate this holiday and this Pi Day book list from the University of Calgary has “pie” fun for all ages (including you adults:)).
