Pi Day Celebrations: On Pi Day (3/14) Ms. Cheatham’s Math 1 classes celebrated the irrational number pi and its many unique qualities. Some activities included: a pi paper chain making contest, measuring circular objects to investigate the ratio of pi, learning about the history of pi, writing haikus, and of course, eating pie. Students also had a contest to see who could memorize the most of the infinite digits of pi - first place was 146 digits (Tristian W), second place was 82 digits (Jose L), and third place was 58 digits (Jennifer H).
