The St. Croix Central High School Math Department hosted its first Pi Day Math Expo on March 14 to commemorate the annual national celebration of the Greek letter Pi (“π”), which is the symbol used in mathematics to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter—approximately 3.14159.
Math students displayed an impressive array of original math games and projects. Prizes were awarded to students in the following categories, including best Pi Day T-shirt, best mathematical presentations and displays, and student who recited the most digits in Pi.
Pi Day was founded by Physicist Larry Shaw of the San Francisco Exploratorium in 1988 and is celebrated at educational institutions around the world.
