Pi Day 3/14

Value of Pi made the day 3/14 as International Day of Mathematics

The International Day of Mathematics (IDM) is a worldwide celebration. Each year on March 14 all countries will be invited to participate through activities for both students and the general public in schools, museums, libraries and other spaces.

Each year the worldwide event focuses on a particular theme. The aim of the themes is to connect mathematics to all sorts of subjects, fields and ideas, spark creativity and provide focus to the event.

This year the theme is Mathematics Unites.

The theme for the first year was ‘Mathematics is Everywhere.’ The focus was to explore how mathematics is found in science, technology, art, games, and many other activities and subjects.

Previously, the theme of the event has also been ‘Mathematics for a Better World’. The idea was similar – it showcased how mathematics is used all around us, but the focus was more on how mathematics improves our lives. From artificial intelligence to designing rockets and satellites, mathematical codes help make those inventions a reality.

The value of Pi was first calculated by a mathematician who was called Archimedes of Syracuse. However, the value was officially accepted by the scientific community only after Leonhard Euler came up with the symbol of Pi in 1737.

The major goals of the International Day of Mathematics is to improve understanding among the general public of the importance of mathematics in education, raise awareness of the role of maths in modern society, science, and disaster management; increase access to information about mathematics, increase international networking, and collaborations in public awareness of mathematics and more.
