Pi Day at LVSI MathLab at Infinity and SOJO high schools celebrated Pi-day by organizing a competition to memorize the most digits of pi.

The rules of competition were simple:

  • recite the most digits of pi
  • in the correct order
  • in two tries.

The award was a real Apple PI-E!

In MathLab's first period, Jasmine who is a freshman, was against stiff competition: Carlos, a sophomore.

Carlos was able to amass 24 digits in his memory. It was an admirable feat to accomplish within 30 minutes.

Despite of having a senior competitor, Jasmine managed to memorize 26 digits and won the

Pi-e!

In MathLab's sixth period, the competition turned HOT!

Jezreel managed to recite 56 digits in the correct order!

Victor tied with Jezreel at exactly 56 digits.

A head-to-head PI-off was inevitable.

What followed was an astounding demonstration of competitiveness and magnitude of human memory.

Victor managed to store additional 24 digits of pi in his short-term-memory reaching a whooping total of 80 digits.

Jezreel followed close at 62 digits.
