SFCC Celebrates Pi Day
South Florida Community College Mathematics Professor Jim McBride presents SFCC student Alex Wheaton with a Pi Plate, a graphing calculator, and a free pie from Village Inn restaurant after Wheaton recited Pi to the greatest number of digits during SFCC’s annual Pi Day competition. Wheaton recited Pi to the 138th digit. The Greek letter Pi is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Although it extends to infinity, Pi is typically expressed as 3.14 and officially celebrated on March 14.
