The powerful number of Pi is going to celebrated for the first time at Pitt Meadows secondary on Thursday.
Pi Day is celebrated around the world on March 14, the 14th day of the third month, the first three digits of Pi.
“We’re just trying to build up the math culture here at the school to try and make it more fun and get kids to want to take math and to find it interesting,” said math and science teacher Amanda Buchan.
“You use math every single day in your life. Go to the grocery store, you are using math,” said Nataiya D’Onofrio another math and science teacher at the school.
For Pi Day there will be different stations at the school for students to participate in. There will be a pie making station, there will be a station where students can go onto a computer and figure out where in the digits of Pi their birthday falls. There will be math crafts where the digits 0 to 9 are assigned different colours so students can make bracelets using beads or different designs using the digits of Pi to guide the colouring.
