Corrections

March 24, 2006

In the Maryland section March 15, the caption accompanying a photo of Pi Day activities at the Maryland Science Center gave an incorrect anniversary for the use of the ratio pi. The ratio has been used for thousands of years and the use of the Greek letter pi to represent the ratio dates to 1706. This year marks the 300th anniversary of pi.

The Sun regrets the error.
