Re: Pi Day 2009

Agreed, we Brits don't use American order of days and months.  But do you Yanks think we should celebrate 'e' month in Feb '71?  And if not, why not?

Re: Pi Day 2009

Britain could have Pi day on 31/4 if it wanted.


Why did the vector cross the road?
It wanted to be normal.

Re: Pi Day 2009

I've never really heard of any sort of formal celebration for the day of the natural logarithm, but I'd assume that it'd be on the 27th of January, or maybe the 7th of February.

Re: Pi Day 2009

Happy Pi Day!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Pi Day 2009

March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein. A very auspicious day for the math & science community indeed.
