Happy Pi Day!

Happy Pi Day!

At 1:59 my inbox was flooded with Pi Day greetings from my students… who are currently on spring break!  Some students sent e-mails from destinations with differing time zones. Most students aimed for 3/14 at 1:59, and a few chose to send me greetings around 3:14.

Before break, I held to my tradition of giving every student this Happy Pi Day greeting card.  Students inevitably attempt to memorize the digits of Pi… and the winner this year memorized a whopping 65 digits in no time at all!  Though we all understand that this task is highly impractical 😉 it was fun and impressive to see how quickly students could memorize SO many digits!  Too bad they didn’t see this video beforehand (how clever is he?)
