be well-rounded….CELEBRATE PI
DAY !!!!
What
is Pi?:
Arguably the most famous number not an integer (It's irrational!),
pi comes from dividing the distance around a circle by the greatest
distance across the circle: circumference divided by
diameter. This quotient or ratio equals the number pi no matter how big
the circle is. Even though this relationship has been known for thousands
of years, it was only 300 years ago that the Greek letter pi (the first letter
of the Greek word for “surrounding perimeter”) was introduced. This
number has a decimal representation which never stops or repeats, although
modern computers have now computed pi to over a trillion decimal places!

A Final Thought...
Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner eating a classroom pi.
He stuck in his thumb
Pulled out a three-point-one
And said “what a good math student am I!”
