Pi Day at KCA
Pi, is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi = roughly 3.14 (although with computers the number has been calculated to over 1 trillion digits!)... Pi Day was celebrated Monday, 3.14 at KCA! Students dressed as "Math Nerds", played math games in their classes, voted to see which teacher would get a "Pi" in the face (congratulations Mrs. Madison!), recited poems, verses and songs, and competed to see who could recite the most digits of Pi, congratualations to Christopher Vincent!
