Happy Pi Day, Pirates!

Today, 3/14, is Pi Day. Southwestern President Edward Burger reminds us:
No matter what you accomplish today, remember “dπ/dt=0” means “Once a Pi-rate, always a Pi-rate.”

As a treat, here is a long-lost video of President Burger (then Professor Burger) giving a Calculus lecture on The Music of Math, where he discusses how he converted Pi to music. Enjoy this gem, and be sure to carve out time to enjoy some “Pi” of your choice today - whether in the form of pizza, lemon meringue, or calculus.
