This week, the MBS Math Department celebrated Pi Day with (what else?) a faculty/staff pie-baking competition. Congratulations to World Languages teacher Rita Moch Arias, whose guava cheesecake pie was judged best in show by our esteemed panel of judges.
Math teacher Natalie Marone’s blueberry oatmeal topping pie took home second place, while Art & Design teacher Zach Mazouat’s banoffee pie earned the bronze medal.
Thank you to all of the faculty members who participated in this year’s competition!
Pi Day, which celebrates the mathematical constant Pi (3.14), is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Since 3, 1 and 4 are the first three digits of Pi, March 14th was selected as the date for the holiday. March 14th is also Albert Einstein’s birthday and the two events are often celebrated together.
