It Must Be Pi Day

It Must Be Pi Day

One of our Year 9 mathematics class working together to recite Pi to 262 decimal places!Mathematical competitions and sweet treats during recess and lunch, it must be Pi Day!

Pi Day is celebrated around the world on 14 March (or 3/14 from the American Calendar, which are the first three digits of Pi).

Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi is an irrational number, it continues infinitely without repetition or pattern.  Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorise, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.Q: What do you get when you take the sun and divide it’s circumference by its diameter?
A: Pi in the sky!!
