News: PCC to Celebrate "Pi Day" March 14

To promote the spirit of learning mathematics, Pasadena City College invites the entire campus community to participate in "Pi Day," a student-focused conference with the theme “Yes, I Can Do Math!” The conference will be held on March 14, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the PCC Quad.

Students are encouraged to talk about the subject, share their joys and frustrations, and develop the proper attitude and mindset needed to learn math. Students will discover ways of overcoming difficulties and anxieties in learning math, and celebrate and share their victories in understanding concepts they did not understand before.

There will also be a T-shirt design contest that best typifies the theme, “Yes, I Can Do Math!” First prize is $100, and the deadline is Sunday, Feb. 10. The rules state that the shirt must be three colors or fewer, be computer-designed, and may include the front and back of the shirt. Students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in the contest.

There is also a poster assignment where groups of three to four students will create a poster showcasing research on a topic related to a math or science course. Posters will be presented at the conference, where all are welcome to explore the research that was done.
