### Monday, March 14, 2022 → Pi Day Talk

**SPEAKER:****Dr. Andy Wilson**, Kennesaw State University**TITLE:***"A talk approximately about pi"***TIME:**3:00-4:00pm**LOCATION:**D-250**Mathematics building, Marietta campus**and streaming online in**Microsoft Teams****ABSTRACT:**How can we estimate the value of pi? Much effort has been spent on this problem throughout the history of mathematics. I will focus on one particular approximation that can be traced back to Madhava, a 14th century Indian astronomer, and this approximation's surprising connections to combinatorics and chemistry. Very little background will be assumed and I hope to make this talk approachable to anyone who wants to celebrate Pi Day!
