Posted: March 14, 2017
Pi is the mathematical expression describing the ratio of a
circle's circumference to its diameter, but members of the Math
Club at Gannon University might calculate the formula this
March 14 + pizza = Pi Day.
This year, the celebration will be held on Tuesday, March 14
from 7-9 p.m. in the University's Zurn Science Center, 143 W.
Seventh St. with pizzas of varying diameters and circumferences and
mathematically themed games. A prize will be awarded to the person
who can correctly recall pi to the greatest number of decimal
The annual celebration of the mathematical constant is observed
on March 14 since 3, 1 and 4 are the first three significant digits
of Pi. This is a national observance, the designation of which was
supported by the U.S. House of Representatives in 2009.
