For March I’m going all out Geek by featuring a daily Pi-Archimedes poem! Feel free to join me if you like! ๐Ÿ˜‰

The background for this series is an Ulam Spiral. The Ulam spiral or prime spiral (in other languages also called the Ulam cloth) is a graphical depiction of the set of prime numbers, devised by mathematician Stanislaw Ulam in 1963 and popularized in Martin Gardner’s Mathematical Games column in Scientific American a short time later. It is constructed by writing the positive integers in a square spiral and specially marking the prime numbers.
