In honor of Pi Day, Teza Technologies employees in the Chicago office teamed up with students from After-School All-Stars for fun activities. They spent the afternoon in small groups working on math exercises, measuring the value of Pi and discussing careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Pi Day is celebrated around the world each year on March 14. Pi is the Greek letter “π” and is a mathematical constant used to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. It was first introduced in 1706 by William Jones and later adopted in 1737 by Leonhard Euler, a Swiss mathematician.
Pi consists of more than one trillion digits and continues infinitely, however, only 39 digits past the decimal are needed to accurately calculate the spherical volume of our universe. Its abbreviated version is commonly known as 3.14159.
