HCC Celebrates Pi Day

Monday, March 14, was National Pi Day. Pi, which is the mathematical constant which shows the ratio between a Euclidean circle s circumference to its diameter, has an approximate value of 3.14, thus the celebration each year on 3-14. To raise math education awareness, and in celebration, the Henderson Community College s Adult Learning Center hosted a day-long event which included pies (the edible type), math puzzles and math word searches. Adult Learning Center students were treated to pies while studying.
