Pi is everywhere around us. 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. The celebration traditionally mimics the first eight digits of Pi, which are 3.1415926. This year CCC celebrates Pi Day on Friday, March 15th from 1:59pm to 6pm in the Patriot Hall Gym.
CCC’s regionally acclaimed band, 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 (by the slice-$2 or whole pie-$8).
Please join us as we celebrate the mysteries of Pi. Admission is free! All ages and families are welcome (children under 12 need to be accompanied by an adult).
