Pi day 2017

 

Tuesday March 14th is internationally known as “Pi Day”.  Why is it Pi Day?  Because Pi is the number 3.14159…… . An irrational number and that date is the third month and the 14th day!

To mark this unique day, many students came to PE204 at lunch time to eat some Pi(e)s and participate in a number of Pi based activities. The room was buzzing with excitement as we watched some Pi songs on You Tube and students recited Pi to as many decimal places as they could. Our Mathematics prefect. Melissa  Ruz, can recite Pi to 120 decimal places!

Thanks to our senior students who helped with the activities and brought along some Pi(e)s to share!
