On Tuesday 14 March (3.14 in month-first formatting) Farnborough Hill celebrated π day - it would be irrational not to (pun intended!).
There were puzzles for all (even staff!) on Firefly, a national π representation contest launch and even π for lunch.
All pupils with a Mathematics lesson on a Tuesday got involved with a π day puzzle-hunt around the School. Teams of mathematicians sought 26 puzzles hidden around the School, and solved them in order to earn digits. Combinations of these could be exchanged at The Bank for even higher digits, and the team then had to create a decimal string as close to π as they could manage.
It seems that mathematical know-how and a healthy sense of competition are both alive and well at Farnborough Hill. Congratulations to all who got involved to make it such a transcendental day!
