Karen Rudd – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – March 14 is celebrated as Pi Day across the globe.
Pi is used in math to represent the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. This ratio is roughly 3.14 but goes onto 2.7 trillion more digits.
LRHS math teacher Meghan Sugalski celebrates the holiday with her class.
“I let them watch a movie and they’re allowed to bring in any snacks that are circular,” said Sugalski. “I also give them a little Pi day pencil.”
Sugalski is a self-proclaimed math dork and happily spoke about the symbol’s history.
Sugalski said, “It’s a natural phenomenon that occurs in nature and circular objects. I just think it’s really cool.”
Sophomore Morgan Deglopper took part in today’s festivities in class, “It was a really fun class and we got to watch Tom and Jerry.”
