Students from Brisbane Water Secondary College Umina Campus celebrated Pi Day on March 14.
Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant Pi and is observed on March 14 as the date when written month/day (3/14) resonates with the first three significant digits of Pi: 3.14.
Schools across the world have also adopted the Pi Day Challenge where students compete to recall as many digits of Pi as they can.
As Pi is considered an irrational constant in mathematics, it has an infinite number of digits in its decimal representation, meaning there are various ways to calculate the approximate value of Pi.
The Pi Day Challenge required students to calculate as many digits in the sequence as they could.
It was the second time the Umina Campus held the Pi Day Challenge with Year 7 student, Nathan Mirasol taking out the challenge and setting a new record for the event with 102 digits of Pi.
