Hey its Pi Day

Post by TomW on Wed Mar 14, 2012 12:06 pm

Why, might you ask, should anyone want to celebrate a mathematical constant which allows you to calculate the area inside a circle?

As unlikely as it may seem, the number pi, or 3.14159... has been crucial to the development of modern life. As far back as the ancient civilizations of Babylon and Egypt, people needed approximations of pi to deal with the flooding of the Tigris, Euphrates and Nile rivers, for astronomy, and for surveying and building ziggurats and pyramids. The ancient Greeks were the first to study pi for its own mathematical sake.

I recall learning about pi in grade 4 and it has stayed with me ever since. Once I get my head into mathematics, I can't leave it. I like playing with numbers especially when they can be applied to real life situations. I think it's why I like cost accounting. There is so many ways to look at business from a cost accounting perspective.
