William Remembers Pi to 153 Digits
As part of our Pi Day celebrations we invited students to see how good they were at memorising Pi. And William is VERY good indeed, remembering Pi to 153 digits, which makes him our school Pi Champion!
Justin came second, remember it to 110 digits - another amazing performance. Originally defined as the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, Pi is a mathematical constant that now appears in many formulas in all areas of mathematics and physics. It is approximately equal to 3.14159. If you want more detail watch William's performance!
Number hunt challenge
For Pi Day we also held our Number Hunt Challenge, with students being set number challenges and teachers wearing the solutions around their necks. Boys had to match up the right answers to the teachers' names. Congratulations to our top winners: Emmanuel, Vinnie, Anson, Ahmed, Leon, Johan, Kyle, Lalloh, Joshua, Juan, Robert, Prashan, Akinwale, Gean, Calvin, Dawda. Great work, boys!
Pi Day is just one of the ways we celebrate Maths and numeracy throughout the year. Pictured below with their Number Hunt certificates and prizes are Akinwale, Prashan and Joshua.
