What’s better than a day dedicated to your favorite math symbol? A day dedicated to your favorite math symbol and your favorite dessert. Mark your calendar for March 14! Pi Day is quickly arriving and the BYU Department of Mathematics is gearing up for the annual event, held in Brigham Square from 12-2 pm. This year’s event features the ever-popular activities: Pi Recitation, Pi the Professor, and a Pi Eating Contest.

Pi Day is an event for everyone, not just mathematicians! From a Pi-ku (haiku) contest for aspiring poets to Pi Ball (basketball) for athletes, there is surely something for all to enjoy. Pi Day will end with a bang with its usual Pi Countdown starting at 1:59 pm!

Did we mention free food and prizes? BYU Math sweatbands, water bottles, pencils, and more will be given out to everyone who participates.

Pi Day and other BYU Math t-shirts will be for sale at the event as well as in the TMCB lobby the week of Pi Day (March 10-14). For the first time in BYU Math history, toddler t-shirts and infant onesies will also be available in various pi-related styles. If you would like to volunteer to work at a Pi Day booth, please email marketing@math.byu.edu, visit 275 TMCB, or call 801-422-7894. Volunteers will receive a free Pi Day t-shirt.

We can’t wait to see you at Pi Day!

*In case of inclement weather, activities will be moved into the Wilkinson Terrace
