                 PI DAY PAGE - Sehome High School

   http://wwwshs1.bham.wednet.edu/PROJECTS/Pi%20Day/index.htm

  Rachel Harrington, a teacher at Sehome High School in
  Bellingham, Washington, pointed us to what she did with her
  students for Pi Day last year. They made a Pi Chain. She got
  the idea from a student who made a necklace with 300 beads
  on it. Each bead represented a different digit of pi, with
  colors corresponding to the digits 0-9. She said that it got
  a little crazy, but it was a lot of fun.

  For more ideas to use for a Pi Day celebration:

                     FAST FOOD COMBINATIONS

     http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.mcdonalds.html

  Several contributors noticed when McDonald's introduced a
  special menu with 8 different items. An ad claimed that this
  creates 40312 possible combinations. Is this true?

  As answers to this question are explored, information on
  combinations and permutations is provided.
