PI day is nearing again. Time for another event.
We have an affinity for math and wanted to celebrate pi day again. Coordinates lead to a local restaurant--all participants are responsible for their own food and beverage. No math skills needed to attend event. We will be at GZ beginning at 1:15 PM and end around 2:30 PM. Please RSVP so we can get an idea of seating space needed.
We will observe all social distancing requirements as per the state of ND. If we are unable to meet inside--an outdoor alternative will be provided.
"An Ode to pi" or "A Mathematician's Fantasy"
~A Shakespearean Sonnet~
- by Bryan Beyer
- Oh pi, every night I think of you,
Your perfect circles wander through my dreams.
I would like to deny it, but its true,
Forever I will adore you, it seems.
Squares just can't shape up; triangles are lame.
A heptagon is just too hard to draw,
Each hexagon looks exactly the same.
But I will not forget the time I saw
That enchanting ratio in your eyes.
Your diameter to circumference
Will never change, would not dare to surprise,
And that, dear pi, makes all the difference.
I commit you to my heart evermore-
Alas, my pi, you are three-point-one-four
