Pi Day 2023: “Mathematics for Everyone”;
Pi Day 2023 is celebrated every year on 14 March to celebrate the mathematic constant Pi. The value of Pi is 3.14. The value of Pi (the mathematical constant) defines the ratio of a circle’s circumference.
It is celebrated by mathematics enthusiasts around the globe to recognise and appreciate the importance of mathematics in our daily lives. The day is celebrated by various schools, universities, and mathematics organisations globally with a unique theme with an aim of promoting mathematics education and awareness.
According to the official website of the celebration, the theme for Pi Day 2023 is “Mathematics for Everyone”, proposed by Marco Zarco Rotairo from the Philippines’ Trece Martires City National High School.
The value of Pi was first calculated by a mathematician named Archimedes of Syracuse. It was later accepted by the scientific community when Leonhard Euler used the symbol of Pi in 1737.
