PiDay.4.0314Smith-Cotton Junior High math teacher Sarah Eisenmenger breaks out some of the pies that students brought to class Friday to mark “Pi Day” — the annual March 14 (get it? 3/14) celebration of the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Her freshmen geometry students got 3.14 extra credit points if they brought in a pie, and got additional credit if they wore a shirt with a reference to pi.

Carlie Morris was among several students who created shirts dedicated to Pi Day.

Freshman Erik Izazaga won his class pi memorization contest, accurately dictating the constant out to 158 characters. He said it took him four days of studying to commit it to memory.Photos courtesy Sedalia School District 200.
