Pi Day is celebrated on 14th March around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π ”) is 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.
Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern.
On this special day, we celebrated different activities which include Sudoku, Tangram, Tower of Hanoi, Maths Quiz Show and Reciting Digits of Pi.
Learners showed a lot of interest as far as the activities are concerned which triggered them to have maximum attention and involvement.
For instance, Katenya Sudais (Senior 2) recited 239 digits of Pi and Ermoshkin Philip Ohairwe (Senior 2) recited 163 digits of Pi.
Winners of other activities are as follows:
Ketegaya Arafat (Senior 2, Sudoku ), Tend Bradly ( Senior 1, Tangram), Tumusiime Prosper ( Senior 1, Tower of Hanoi).The Team of Senior 2B was the winner of Maths Quiz Show. To crown it all, Pi Day was one of the days we enjoyed most in our school this year. It made us proud of our students who proved to be genius in logical thinking. We thank our maths department ,especially Mr. Adil Unal and Mr. Ssebuyira Jimmy.
Long live Pi Day!
