Irrational rationale

Curtis Reich, Vancouver Island University Math Club vice president, left, Devon Jones, club social coordinator and Jonathan van Spronsen, club president, show off the first 1,000 digits of pi, a pecan Pi pie and the hand symbol for Pi during Pi Day celebrations Friday (March 14 or 3/14).

Events celebrating the irrational number included free pizza, a pie bake off and a contest to recite the most decimal places of Pi from memory, from which the top three winners were awarded the privilege of throwing cream pies in the faces of faculty math professors.
