“Twenty-nine years ago, a relatively small group of people in San Francisco celebrated the number pi by walking around a circle and eating fruit pies. Since the, Pi Day has become an international celebration. Why do we care about pi and just what is it about pi that has caught the imagination of so many people? In this presentation, we’ll look at the wonder and beauty of Pi.”
