On March 14 (3/14), the Shapleigh School joined math enthusiasts around the world in celebrating "Pi Day". Pi - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter - is a number that will continue infinitely without repeating, but is widely rounded to 3.14. Students learned more about Pi, wrote Pi haikus, used Pi to measure such things as head size, and of course, enjoyed some tasty, homemade pie! Coincidentally, March 14 is also the birthday of legendary physicist Albert Einstein! For more information on Pi Day, visit http://www.piday.org/ or http://www.exploratorium.edu/pi/. |
