Title: Mathematical Association of America: On This Day
Url: https://www.maa.org/news/on-this-day
Publisher: Mathematical Association of America
Description: Readers who appreciate mathematics or are fond of historical trivia may enjoy visiting the On This Day feature provided by the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). This fun educational tool allows visitors to choose any day in the calendar year and presents them with a selection of historical events related to mathematics that occurred on that day. These events range from birth and death anniversaries of significant people to career milestones and historic mathematical achievements. For example, on November 30, Isaac Newton became president of the Royal Society in 1703, while on May 24, the French mathematicians Jean Guilloud and Martine Bouyer computed pi to one million decimal places in 1973. Each factoid presented in On This Day is accompanied by one or more links to additional information. Established in 1915, the MAA is "the world's largest community of mathematicians, students, and enthusiasts."
