14, 2015 is approaching, which means one thing… It’s almost time to
celebrate 3/14/15, the Pi Day of the Century! Want to learn more about
the origins of pi and why this Pi Day is so special?
|Don’t miss any of MoMath’s Pi Day events on Saturday, March 14!|
Get ready for a mathematical morning! Join MoMath at 9 am in Madison Square Park; we’ll count ourselves to figure out what pi means, and then count down together to 9:26 am
Then, MoMath will open 30 minutes for a day full of special pi-related activities! Go on a scavenger hunt through the exhibits, try out circular tic-tac-toe and pi puzzles, make pi personal by finding a unique number sequence in its infinite digits, estimate pi using candy, and more.
Plus, be there when we announce the winners of the 2015 Pi Day competition and read out their submissions. Who will have the best pi-related song, limerick, or pi-ku (a three-lined poem with lines of 3, 14, and 15 syllables)?
After the day is done, get ready to count down to 9:26 pm — and light up Madison Square Park — in an exciting MathHappening event! Use glowing light sticks to discover the beautiful recurrence of pi among circles of all sizes, and end the evening with free hot chocolate and pi from SD26 and Strong Place.
