The Great pi / e Debate

I had a very busy March, so I wasn’t able to do much for Pi Day this year. But, I am going to get in one more post before the end of Pi Month. That’s right, since this year is 2014, March 2014 (3/14) is Pi Month!

Here is a video from The Mathematical Association of America. It is “The Great pi/e Debate”, presented at Williams College during their First Year Family Weekend, in which two professors debate the relative merits of the numbers pi and e. Which is better? Watch the videos and decide for yourself.  Part 1 is mostly introductions, so if you prefer, just start in with part 2.
