## Fun Facts

Laughter is the shortest distance between two people. Victor Borge

### The shortest mathematical proof ever was published in the American Mathematical Monthly in 1948. It proved that 1+1=2.

Here is the proof:

“Consider a bakers’ dozen. Take away two. What do you have left? A dozen.”

### The symbol pi was first used in 1706 by William Jones.

Pi is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant – the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter – which is approximately 3.14159. Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point and it is thought that the digits in pi never repeat and have no pattern.

The first person to use the symbol pi was William Jones, who in 1706 published A New Theory of Cognate Proportions. He used the symbol in his book to represent what we now call an irrational number – a number that cannot be expressed as a rational number, or fraction. Interestingly, Jones actually used the Greek letter ⟨π⟩ to represent 3/2, which differs from our modern definition by only 1/7100000000000000000!

It wasn’t until 1737 that Leonhard Euler popularized the use of π as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. He introduced it in his book Introductio in analysin infinitorum, and it has been used ever since.

### The first use of the term “math” in English was in 1643 by Robert Herrick.

It was in a work called “Observations of Sundry Natural Objects”. The word “mathematics” comes from the Greek μάθημα (máthēma), which means “what one learns”, “that which is learned”, or “learning”.
