In the name of learning


The Grade 7 students at Exploits Valley Intermediate began learning about circles recently in math class and the significance of Pi, an irrational number with a never ending set of digits.

Krista Simms asked her math classes if they thought they could remember the first 100 digits of Pi.  Several students rose to the challenge and on Fri., Feb. 5 three of those students were successful.

After standing in front of their peers and reciting all 100 digits they got the opportunity to “pie” their teacher in the face.

Science teacher, Thomas Caines, the vice principal, Darren Woolridge and the principal, John Antle all volunteered to be “pied” and the students had a wonderful afternoon.
