CHESTERTON | The Chesterton Middle School seventh grade math department celebrated its sixth annual Pi Day this year by reading books to the students, researching the history of Pi, participating in a variety of 'irrational' activities, and the crowning of the Queen, King, Princess and Prince of Pi Day from each team.
Students competed in the crown-wearing contest by reciting as many digits of Pi as they could remember and by a word search that contained words related to Pi. The CMS student who memorized the most digits of Pi was Kristina Stevenson with an amazing 230 digits of Pi followed by Nolan Poczekay with 220 digits (beating his brother’s earlier record of 207).
Pi Day would not be complete without the eating of real "pie" as a culminating activity. The CMS seventh grade math teachers sponsor this event each year.
