"Pi" - What is it? Where does it come from? Who discovered it? How do I find it? All good questions for 3.14159 . . . . At the Math Centre part of each session time on "Pi" Day was devoted to answering these questions with hands on discovery. In addition, the "Pi" Card Game devised by Cathy using our special Mathnasium Cards was an exciting addition to raising awareness of the digits in "Pi" with game winners taking home "something" ROUND!! Great Day Mathletes!
