Happy Pi Day!

Pi Day pie

Today is Pi Day! Pi Day commemorates the mathematical constant π (pi) each year on March 14, or 3/14, which are the first three digits of π (3.14). π is a mathematical constant that measures the ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter. Because π is an irrational number, it cannot be expressed as a fraction. Its decimal representation never ends and is never repeated.

In honor of Pi Day, we thought it would be fun to highlight the Mathematicians project on Geni! The goal of this project is to compile the profiles of all the mathematicians on Geni. Check out the project to learn more about the family trees of famous mathematicians, such as John Nash, William H. PickeringIsaac Newton and René Descartes.
