Pi Day is an
annual celebration of the mathematical constant π. Pi Day is observed on
March 14 since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π.

Lecturers of the Study are urging people not to be afraid of pursuing the subject in their studies, with the false assumption that it is difficult.

Students, Teachers and other Mathematics lovers in Rwanda say there is no reason to fear the study, noting that all that is required to understand and do well in the subject is confidence and hard work.

Mathematicians stress that the study is not limited to classrooms and is in fact part of everyday life and in this modern age, there is a lot that cannot be done without it.

As Rwanda marks Pi Day for the 2nd time and illustrates the importance of Mathematics, the Principle of the University of Rwanda's College of Science and Technology has noted that putting emphasis in the promotion of Math as a subject here in Rwanda is in line with the country's objective of building a knowledge based economy.

To mark the day, a
Math Competition was organized that saw the participation of 114 students, 55
of them girls, from 24 Schools; the best performing Mathematics Students in the
entire country.

The winner of the Competition walked away
with an *iPad* and $500 while those who
took 2nd, 3rd and 4th place got the $500 cash prize.
