About the International Day of Mathematics

The International Day of Mathematics (IDM) is a worldwide celebration led by the International Mathematical Union. Each year on 14 March schools, museums, libraries and other spaces in countries around the world will be invited to participate in the celebration through activities for both students and the general public. The International Day of Mathematics was declared by UNESCO during the 40th session of the General Conference, 26 November 2019, and the 14 March 2020 marked the first celebrations.

March 14 was chosen as the date for the IDM because some countries write it as 3/14 and the mathematical constant Pi is approximately 3.14.
