Elias Thomas took first place in Pi Jeopardy, held March 12 at Durham Community School in recognition of Pi Day, which celebrates the irrational number Pi. Students learned about Pi’s inception, competing in Pi Jeopardy and creating Pi art. They ended the day with a Pi Day competition. Teacher Jacqueline Hammond asked the sixth-graders how many digits of Pi they could memorize. Thomas memorized 263 digits, followed by Hannah Moore with 102 and Aynslie Decker with 101. Courtesy photoThe stack of snow in front of L.L.
