Meadow Hill 8th Graders Celebrate Pi Day

Pi anyone?

On Monday, March 14, 2022, Meadow Hill 8th grade students celebrated Pi Day (3/14).  

Pi, also known by the Greek letter “π,” is a constant value used in math that represents the ratio of a circumference of a circle to its diameter, which is the numerical equivalent of 3.14….15…9265359… (and so on). Additionally, March 14 is also Albert Einstein’s birthday, so this day is nothing short of a mathematician’s delight. 

In honor of this special day, Mr. Wenzel’s 8th grade class at Meadow Hill prepared delicious apple pies while Mrs. Mellili’s math classes engaged in various fun-filled math activities. Students participated in a pie eating contest, partnered up for some friendly competition in a Pi facts trivia game, and finally showcased their brain power in a challenge of who could memorize the most digits of Pi in the correct sequence.

The winners of the challenge were as follows:

1st Place: Ann Quintero (Recited the first 100 digits)

2nd Place: Sofia Bellardino (Recited the first 94 digits)

3rd Place: Elisa Mejia (Recited the first 62 digits)
