Pi Day at Rosedale College 17/05/21
Pi Day is celebrated on 14th March 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 Day is an annual opportunity for Mathematics enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about Mathematics, and fundamentally eat pie!
Although we were not lucky enough to eat pie at Rosedale College, we celebrated this year’s Pi Day by having different Pi-related activities during Mathematics lessons, where our students were asked to research the famous number Pi and come up with creative ideas to celebrate this special day. The students really enjoyed this challenge, and some of the creative ideas that were presented were truly exceptional!
