Student excels during Pi Day celebrations

16th March 2018

Pi Day is celebrated on March 15th around the world.  Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point and Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorise. One John Whitgift student, Niamh Clarke, has managed to memorise it to 104 decimal places! A very impressive feat!
