Circles and spheres are essential objects in geometry, but measuring them is impossible without the right tools: circle constants. Mathematicians tend to take these numbers for granted, but historically the quest for precision in computing these constants has been a
On the occasion of Tau Day on June 28th, 2019, AARMS will partner with the Discovery Centre to celebrate the hidden math in our everyday lives. Eva Knoll (MSVU), Daniele Turchetti (AARMS & Dalhousie), and their team of volunteers will
