Students Present at Pi Day Math Conference
While some had their fill of pies on March 14, a group of Arcadia students spent Pi Day presenting at the Spring Meeting of Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware Section of the Mathematics Association of America. The event, held at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, Pa., brought students from nine colleges and universities in the region to participate in discussions and present papers. A countdown led up to the Pi moment, 3/14/15 9:26 a.m., in recognition of an instant which occurs only once in a century.
