National Pi Day

Pi Day is celebrated on 14 March 2017 around the world. Pi (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. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorise.

Big Congratulations to the following Year 9 students who took part in the challenge of memorising Pi and managed to recall over 30 decimal places:
