The International Day of Mathematics (IDM) is a worldwide celebration. Each year on March 14 all countries will be invited to participate through activities for both students and the general public in schools, museums, libraries and other spaces.
March 14 is already celebrated in many countries as Pi Day because that date is written as 3/14 in some countries and the mathematical constant Pi is approximately 3.14.
The International Day of Mathematics is a project led by the International Mathematical Union with the support of numerous international and regional organizations.
Relive the launch of the first IDM, which took place through our website with announcements, videos and images of events happening globally.
Watch the video we created with clips sent from all over the world by people showing us how Mathematics is Everywhere.
