Pi Day is Celebrated in Cascade

Posted: Updated:
Montana -

Today may be Friday, but it is also Pi Day! For those of you who haven't had a math class in a while, lets start off with a little review.

March 14, also known as Pi Day, gives everyone an excuse to celebrate math. Pi, which also means the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, is most commonly rounded to 3.14. But its actually a number that has a trillion more digits past its decimal point. And what better way to learn about pi, than to you guessed it, eat pie!

Matt Driessen, a high school science teacher, explains, "We never have a day to celebrate math. So we kinda got the school rounded up to say we can have a day celebrating math and that's kinda what we did."

Students played three on one games to earn fourteen points, held a bake off, had scavenger hunts, and of course had a pie eating contest. But there was one student that stood out to Driessen the most.

He says Shelton Hilky memorized 166 digits of pi to win the ipad mini they gave out to whoever could memorize the most digits of pi.

This was the first Pi Day celebration held on their campus and they plan to have many more. Because lets be honest, nothng makes math sweeter than when there's a little sugar. Happy Pi Day folks!
