4 March 2002 Vol. 7, No. 9 THE MATH FORUM INTERNET NEWS Pi Day Page - Sehome High School | CyberSurfari Dr. Math FAQ: Fast Food Combinations 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.
