Pi Day at Chase Middle School

March 14th was pi day. If you remember from your school days, pi equals 3.14 and represents the ratio of the circumference to the diameter of a circle. Chase Middle School math teacher David Jung told students that if they each read at least 3.14 books, he would cut off the beard he had grown for six months. The students met the challenge reading more than 1,900 books, so with the students watching Assistant Principal Bob Gay shaved off most of Jung’s beard, but he left just enough to form the pi symbol on Jung’s face.
