Pi Day 2020

This year’s Pi Day wasn’t as joyful as in the previous years, as it coincided with our first week in self-isolation and we were too preoccupied to make sure we had the essentials (like the weekly food supplies) straightened out. And yet, Simon and Neva managed to squeeze a couple of pi-related activities in.

Simon: One digit is the month, two digits are the date and then up to 99 digits for the year. You can’t have more than 99 digits for the year because then the universe will be dead. So you can only use up to 102 digits of Pi for Pi Day!

The kids approximated Pi with random “dice” throws, the classic way that Simon also used for a nice coding project a couple months back.
