Geocache Description:

Event: Pi Day
Date: March 14, 2018
Time: 6pm - 7pm
Location: Perkins Restaurant - 2410 Highway 281 South, Jamestown, ND 58401

Pi Day is held to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi). It is always celebrated every year on March 14 and this date is also the birthday of Albert Einstein, so the two events are sometimes celebrated together.

Pi Day is observed on March 14, because of the Ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes' first rough approximation of pi as being 3.14.

Pi (π) is the mathematical constant that has been known for almost 4000 years. Its value is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter in Euclidean space or the ratio of a circle’s area to the square of its radius. The value of pi is approximately equal to 3.14159265, but it is an irrational number and its decimal representation never ends or repeats. With the use of computers, Pi has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits past its decimal. Pi is an irrational and transcendental number meaning it will continue infinitely without repeating.

The lower case Greek letter π is used because it is the first letter of the Greek word Perimeter, which probably refers to its use in the formula perimeter divided by diameter equals the constant for all circles. The concept of π has become the most common ground between mathematicians and non-mathematicians.

Join us at 6:00PM for dinner (or just pie) at the Perkins near the intersection of Interstate 94 and U.S. Highway 281 in Jamestown, North Dakota. We will be meeting in the room that is separate from the main dining area on the northwest side of the building.

Please indicate how may will be attending in your log so we can let the restaurant know how many tables we will need.

Bring any travel bugs you have that you would like to swap or drop. What ever is not taken by the end of the event, we'll grab and drop at Geowoodstock XVI in Cincinnati, Ohio at the end of May.
