Recently Barnwood Park students celebrated Pi Day by baking a massive 510 apple pies!

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world.Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately

3.14159

 

Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits. To celebrate Pi Day at Barnwood Park we invited year 7,8,9 & 10 students to each bake an 

APPLE PI PIE.

 

Each Pi pie had to be baked with a number on the top; once the pies were baked they were lined up in the canteen to show Pi to 510 decimal places!

The longest recorded line of apple pies is 1477 set by Edgar Hensel in 2013, BUT we think that we have longest line of Apple Pi Pies. Unless of course you know differently! 

Extra special thanks goes to Mrs D. Griffin, without whom none of this would have happened. Who knew Maths could be so tasty!
