Pi Day

 

Pi day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world.

The Greek letter π is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. While only a few of the digits are needed for typical calculations Pi’s infinite number can be displayed in many different and fun ways.

During Stop the Clock Day Year 7 pupils completed varied tasks and investigations relating to Pi including making paper chains to represent its digits.

There was a competition for the longest chain which stretched the length of the lower school corridor.
