CCC will celebrate notable physicist Albert Einstein’s birthday and the mystery of the mathematical constant Pi (π) at annual Pi Day event.
Pi Day is on Friday, March 11th, 2011 at CCC’s Jerome Ave. Campus (Towler Hall 3rd Floor Commons) from 1:59 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Pi is everywhere around us; it is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to the length of its diameter. Held on the weekday closest to the actual day, the celebration almost mimics the first eight digits of Pi, which are 3.1415926. Thus, Pi Day is on Friday, March 11th (3.14), begins at 1:59 p.m. (159) and goes to (2) 6:00 p.m. (6).
CCC’s regionally acclaimed singing group, The π‘d π‘pers, will open the festivities at 1:59 p.m. with music and singing. There will be math games, Pi and other math walks, face painting, Pi prizes and more. Pi’s famous relative—Pie—will be sold by the Pi-Phi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa as a fundraiser.
Please join us as we celebrate the mysteries of Pi. Admission is free! This event is appetizing for all ages and families are encouraged to attend (children under 12 need to be accompanied by an adult).
For additional information about this fun event or if you have questions about the mysteries of Pi, email TJ Lackner, CCC Mathematics Instructor, or call 503-338-2452.
