Pi DAY at South Park High School


Happy Pi Day!

Pi Day Celebrated at South Park High School

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 (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 with out repetition or pattern.  While 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.

Students in Mrs. Wedow class celebrated Pi day during class!   Happy Pi Day!
