March 14th, Year 7 students took part in activities to mark Pi Day.
Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in Mathematics to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circular object to its diameter. The Pi Day activities enriched and deepened students' understanding of the concept of Pi.
Some students had the following to say about Pi Day:
"Pi Day was fun-filled day where through investigations we got to learn lots about the pi digits. We measured circumference and diameter of circles and different real life objects like bicycle wheel and a wok. We then divided the circumference of the circle by the diameter . Our group managed to get 3.13. Pi Day was enjoyable I’d definitely do it again!"
“I’ve learnt that google has added another 9million digits to the Pi number this afternoon. I like Pi, lots of numbers”.
“My favourite part was finding Pi and eating pie”.
