Pi Day!

By Mr. Bui

Middle School math students celebrated Pi Day with a slice of the sweet dessert! March 14 (3/14), commonly known as Pi Day, has been adopted by the mathematics community to promote pi (Greek letter “π”), 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.
