Waratah Campus has been celebrating all things Pi this week in preparation for Pi (π) Day on the 14th March.
Activites have included an 100 digits of Pi Memory Challenge, making Pi chains and a mid week Pi Maths Challenge.
Pi is at the centre of our understanding of geometry and much of mathematics. It is how we calculate the area of a circle (pi times the radius squared), the volume of a sphere (four-thirds of pi times the radius cubed) and a host of other such simple calculations.
Pi is an irrational number, it can never be expressed exactly as a fraction, and its decimal representation never ends.
A big thank you to all the students who participated in these activities and a special congratulations to Charles and Murphy for their outstanding efforts in the Pi Memory Challenge.
