Happy Pi Day!
To celebrate Pi Day 2020, which falls on 3rd March (or 3/14 using the American date format) the Fitzalan High School maths department ran a problem solving competition for form groups. The prize was a giant cookie, and pupils were given the measurements of the cookie and its box and asked to calculate how much empty space was in the box. The winning form group was 7ASM who correctly solved the puzzle and won the giant cookie to share.
“7ASM made very short work of the cookie that was absolutely delicious. It was a lovely surprise that we had won and we are very proud of Jacob and Hosam who showed us how to work the answer out” - Mr A Smith
