Pi … When you hear the word, you probably think of the dessert. But at Fairfield Magnet School for Math and Science, we think of another word. Pi, or the 16th letter of the Greek alphabet, is a decimal commonly rounded to 3.14. That’s why we celebrated Pi on National Pi day which was March 14. Students created projects of their choice, ranging from games to raps or research papers. They also had the option of creating a Pi project and wearing a shirt about Pi. These shirts were made to express how students feel or think about Pi.
Pi Day was founded on March 14 (3/14) by physicist Larry Shaw more than two decades ago. Pi Day has become known all over the world as a time to rejoice and celebrate that wonderful mathematical marvel, Pi.
