Pi Day Recitation Competitions 2021

Students excel at memorising Pi

Pi Recitation Competitions 2021

Several classes practised their memory techniques in the week after Pi day.

This happened in maths lessons as well as in Spanish.

Strategies that students used included:

  •     Imagining the digits coming out of a hole
  •     Colour coding the digits
  •     Learning a few extra digits/day
  •     Listening to the Pi Day Song on a loop while going to sleep
  •     Working with a student coach

Congratulations to the following students who performed particularly well by reciting pi from memory to the number of decimal places shown:
