A New "Pi-Recitation" Champion Reigns at Sycamore Canyon School
Each year Sycamore Canyon School celebrates March 14th, also known as Pi Day, with a friendly quest to see how many digits of Pi students in grades 6-8 can memorize with the hope of becoming the school's new "Pi Recitation Champion!" A banner even hangs in the school's gymnasium displaying more than 15 years worth of student names - all of whom successfully named the most digits of Pi that year.
This year an incredible new Sycamore Canyon record was set by 8th grade student Kimi who accurately recited 2,048 digits of Pi. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of any circle to the diameter of that circle - it is an irrational number (meaning in decimal form it does not end) and it is not repetitive in nature. The previous all-time record of 2,000 digits recited was set last year by Sycamore Canyon graduate, Jake. Runners up in this year's competition memorized an impressive 583 digits and 167 digits.
Congratulations Sycamore students!
