    Pi Day (March 14th) 14th Mar 18 at 10:08 AM


    I must confess I didn't know there was such a thing! The death of the iconic physics professor happens to coincide with this day (mainly celebrated in America - with pies!) and this has made the day newsworthy this year.

    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/pi-day-march-14-maths-google-doodle-pie-baking-celebrate-30-anniversary-a8254036.html

    3.14 resembles the date, if like the Americans you happen to write it in the form: MM/DD

    Other mathematicians are more keen to celebrate it on 22/7

    Tau is another symbol they mentioned. I only did as far as A/S maths, and I don't remember seeing or using this
