History of Pi

This week my second years are investigating circles and discovering for themselves the magic number, pi.

Pi has great importance in many areas of mathematics, not just circles, and features in the world of complex analysis, chaos theory, fluid mechanics and many more.

Of course, we will be singing The Pi Song, but we will also be watching an interesting video here about the History of Pi.

Remember also that it is Pi Day on 14 March (3/14, get it?)
