Celebrating Pi Day

Posted by Trevecca on Mar 14, 2019 7:56:46 AM


It's March 14, which means today is Pi Day! Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant π (pi). It's observed on March 14 (or 3/14) since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. Originally defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, Pi now has various equivalent definitions and appears in many formulas in all areas of mathematics and physics.

In honor of Pi Day, we're sharing 3.14 facts about Trevecca's mathematics program.

1: We tailor the degree to the student.

Trevecca’s mathematics program offers two concentrations: pure mathematics and applied mathematics. In addition, we also offer a mathematics education degree in collaboration with Trevecca’s School of Education. More than that, we can help you design your course of study to best fit your calling, interests and goals.

2: Our students share their knowledge beyond the classroom.

Through applying for internships with the NSF Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) and attending the Joint Mathematics Meeting, the largest annual mathematics conference in the world, Trevecca's math students have the opportunity to see the material come to life in the real world. In fact, a Trevecca student presented their own research at February's Joint Mathematics Meeting in Maryland.

3: Our graduates are well-prepared for a growing job market.

With STEM jobs projected to grow by 9 million between now and 2024, Trevecca mathematics graduates face a bright future. Our graduates have earned or are completing Ph.D. and master’s programs in finance, business, mathematics, probability, actuarial studies, physics, law and education. Every Trevecca student who has chosen to further their degree by studying graduate mathematics has received scholarships in the form of full tuition and stipends.

.14: Small class sizes.

See what we did there? With a low professor-to-student ratio, students enjoy one-on-one interaction and mentorship with their instructors.
