Fun Holiday – Math 2.0 Day

July 8 is Math 2.0 Day. It is a day to remind ourselves that math, or maths if you follow British English, is not just the boring subject you hated during school and college. The world runs on numbers and mathematics.

Without mathematics, we would not have buildings or cars or airplanes or the TV or even the device you are reading this on. Indeed, math is the basis of almost all science and technology. This unofficial holiday is thought to have been created in 2009 and is a celebration of math and technology. It brings together mathematicians, innovators, educators, and policy makers around the world and aims to raise awareness about the importance of math literacy and education, both at the school and college level.

Other Mathematical Holidays

If you are a math enthusiast, there are several other mathematical holidays throughout the year that honor mathematicians and their work. Some of these include Square Root Day, e-Day, Pi Day, Tau Day, Yellow Pig Day, Pi Approximation Day, and Fibonacci Day.

How to Celebrate?

  • Spend the day solving some mathematical problems and telling math jokes.
  • Many companies and universities organize Math 2.0 events. Attend one of these events and learn more about the intersection of mathematics and technology.

Did You Know...

...that the word mathematics comes from the Greek word, máthēma, which means knowledge or to learn?
