March 14, 2019 – Jackson, WI – Today is Pi Day. That’s right, Pi, not pie. Pi is a Greek letter and an irrational number used in math. You may recognize it in connection with circles. A little more technical definition is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.
The best part about Pi Day, is you don’t need to know much about pi to celebrate. All you need to know is the first three numbers. While Pi does go on forever, the first three numbers, 3.14, mark the day to celebrate.
Students at Kettle Moraine Lutheran High School (KML) celebrate by eating pie and pizza pie during math classes. Each class designates a coordinator to plan out the event, and each student contributes by bringing in supplies.
Tim Kuehl’s classes by far celebrate the most.
The eighth-hour calculus II class had a tons of pies!
The students enjoyed apple and pizza pies while paying “full attention” to the actual math lesson going on.
