We had four students compete in the K-4 county track meet at HSU on Tuesday. Students ran in the 50 and 100 meters races, and tried the long jump and baseball throw. (The baseball throw replaces the javelin for this age group… less pointy.) They were all smiles and showed great sportsmanship throughout the two hour event even though they were soaked from the heavy mist by the end.
Pi Day is a celebration of mathematics (it’s not just about eating pie!). The Pi Day website gives us this definition:
“Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) 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 memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.”
Of course, when you get to eat the pie after you’ve calculated pi, it makes it even more fun!
