From Grades 7 & 8 Percy Julian Middle School
I learned more about pi in that presentation than I ever wanted, needed,
or knew existed. It was very good and well organized. It was easy to
find what I needed to. I thought it was fascinating how much information
we have about one number.
Pi is a mystery that really has no answer. I could wake up tomorrow
and a new digit could have been found. It is surprising to me that there
are hundreds of thousands of digits found in Pi, yet we will never find
them all. The student who created this presentation knew so much on the
subject of Pi, I have a hard time remembering all of his facts.I did
not know that Pi can be used to find the area, and circumference, of
a sphere. I was surprised Archimedes was able to get an answer of 3.1428
for Pi, and after that some people were even farther off, I wonder how
Archimedes could get an answer that close without any good technology.
Pi is such an immense number, so how is it possible for someone to memorize
42,000 digits of Pi without having their brain explode, if I wanted to
try to break the record for most amount of Pi memorized, I would surely
go crazy. Pi is an interesting number and the student did a good job
of explaining Pi to people like me who knew hardly anything about Pi
The project was very good. It had a lot of information. I also liked
the pictures that you added to the slides. They were colorful and helped
you understand the slide. The one thing that I would change is that I
would have organized the slides in a timeline. So the oldest information
would go first like when pi was discovered, and present day would go
I thought that the presentation was very well done and interesting.
I learned a lot about the origins of the mysterious number. I never knew
that someone had memorized 42,000 digits of Pi! I also learned how many
digits it has been calculated to and that there is even a reference to
it in the Bible. Good Job!
I think that this page was very resourceful. It showed what Pi is, why
it is there and so on and so forth. After reading this page I have learned
a lot about Pi. We are learning about it in math class right now so if
I ever need help, I can always come to this site. Overall think that
this a great way to learn about Pi. everything about it being explained
in the text. It also shows over 1000 digits of Pi. I thought I would
be to hard to find all of those numbers. But people are still out there
trying to find the last digit of Pi. This is a great site and I recommend
it to everyone.
Interesting. We Celebrated pi day in math on Thursday. I never knew
all of the stuff in the power point though.
First, I loved all the history of pi because I had no idea it was found
so early. I also liked how he showed all the different countries discoveries
of pi. I learned a lot from this presentation. I did not know that pi
was in the Greek alphabet, and that there were so many numbers already
discovered in pi!
I thought this presentation of Pi was very informative. I learned a
lot of things about Pi that I never knew. One thing that I found very
fascinating was that there was a man who memorized 42,000 digits of Pi.
I thought that the slideshow was OK; it was full of basic information
and there wasn't much that amused me until I got to the part where it
said that they have measured pi to 206158430000 digits. I thought that
that was pretty impressive. One other thing that I found interesting
was that Hiryoki Gotu memorized pi to 42,000 digits. I can hardily memorize
a monologue or the preamble of the constitution, and I could never memorize
42,000 digits of pi!
I thought that this presentation included a lot of information and was
a nice little piece of what Pi really is. It seemed that the student
knew what he was talking about and put it all into words that could be
understood by most anyone. Pi is a very tricky and detailed concept that
no one could very accurately explain through the means of a power point
but this student did a lovely job. I now more then i first did about
the number Pi and its origin and history. I believe that more diagrams
or pictures would help the reader to better understand the text, and
maybe definitions of some of the mathematical terms would be of great
assistance. But, overall, I thought that this student did a great job
providing the necessary information for the reader.
I thought the presentation was really well done very well, I think that
the power point was a really good idea. I did not learn much about pi
because I have researched it before.
I found the history of pi to be fairly interesting. I already knew some
stuff about pi, but I didn't know so much about the history. I also was
pretty surprised that someone could memorize 42,000 digits of pi. Overall
it was pretty good and interesting.It is always nice to know about a
cool number that is fairly interesting and even has it's own day, despite
the fact that the number itself is not rational, which is one cool part
about it. The other cool part is how it varies randomly and doesn't repeat
I thought this was very interesting with the usefulness of pi in DNA,
rainbows, music, and ripples. I also never knew that 1650 B.C. they had
math, which was a lot better than I thought. So that was interesting
for me to read about. Something from this that I never knew was that
even so far back in time, people were already trying to find the value
I learned that you can find pi in anything circular and you can also
find it in curves
This slide for Pi was good and had a lot of details in it. I like how
they had some history in the slide and how they set some examples in
the slide for Pi. It should of have more creative things that jump out
to me because during the slide I got bored on some things. Besides that
it was a good slide and explain very well what Pi is.
The information is very helpful about math and also facts about the
champions who memorized the digits. Pi- day is a big remeberance of how
pi- day started.
Honestly, i thought that it was great overall. I learned about things
i didn't know such as Pi is the 16th letter of the Greek Alphabet and
I didn't know that it was in Electricity. I knew that it was in mathematics
and all but i never thought about who invented it and why they did. but
when I read the Presentation. I knew that scientist used it but i didn't
know they used it to describe the world. It was very interesting that
they used it in DNA and that the Human Eye, rainbows, music, and color,
have Pi in them. I also didn't know that Pi was used in the bible. But
overall, the whole presentation was great and I felt like I got to learn
more and more about Pi and for all my life i only thought that Pi was
used for math and math only. But I found out more interesting facts about
I thought that the presentation was very well done and the student who
made it put a lot of time, work, and effort into it. The student used
many pictures and also used lots of words and explanations which made
the presentation very easy to understand. Also history was included and
I think that the presentation is flawless.
I thought that the slide show was very informational in the history
of pi. I never knew that pi was studied throughout history so vastly
from Archimedes to Newton to Tsu Ch'ung Chi. I also never knew that pi
didn't have repeating digits and that the ancient world had discovered
about 100 digits of it by 1701.
I thought that this presentation was both intriguing and fun. However
I thought that their was some things that were sort of repetitive, like
the founders of pi and scientists who studied it. Also some of the information
was very bland and the background made it annoying to read. So all in
all interesting ideas very aboundant, but it was lacking in many places.
I thought this presentation was very interesting. I never really knew
what pi was until I saw this presentation. I just thought pi was a 3
with a gazillion decimals after it. But now I not only know what pi is,
but what it means. Pi is the number of times a circles diameter can fit
around its circumference. Pi will never terminate or repeat, and it can
be found in anything circular. All in all, this presentation really helped
me to understand a number that isn't just a number.
I thought it had good information and was well said. The presentation
was nicely made and it also had nice pictures to go along with the text.
The presentation was very good. I learned a lot more information about
Pi then I ever thought was possible. All I knew about Pi was the first
three numbers 3.14. I didn't even know the fourth number! I found out
that we can find Pi in everything. I also learned about who discovered
Pi. It was Archimedes. Pi is extremely useful in finding out the area
and circumference if a sphere. I found out that Pi can go on and on forever.
This presentation helped me discover the different uses of Pi and other
things that can help me in the near future.
I didn't know pi had a day! Also I didn't know that it represents the
Greek number 80. Great presentation and very informative.
The information that was stated in the power point was very helpful
because i dont pay much attention to Pi. before reviewing the power point
I had no idea that pi was the 16th letter of the greek alphabet. also
i noticed that Alpha beta and gamma (What stepping teams represent) were
part of the alphatbet. even though that was a little off topic, it helped
me realize that the greek alphabet was used for many different things.
Pi is more than a really long number that is used to find how many times
the diameter of a circle fits its circumference to me now...
I learned a lot in this passage. It taught me another way to think of
spring. I wonder how much fun it would have been to celebrate around
the world in spring.
Many people love spring and love it so much they make holidays for just
about anything. Pi day, on march 14 celebrates the never ending decimal.
so it is a good thing that this is a holiday. They all don't need to
be for someone being born or people dying for their country. It just
has to be about something that interests you.
I think pi is cool. I also think that pie is cool. Pi is cool because
it never ends, and never repeats. The powerpointtm said things that I
didn't know about pi.
I thought this presentation was very interesting and cool. Seeing all
those numbers made me think about how long they took to calculate and
made me think about how hard that would be. Also, to think about how
there are still many numbers to find because there are infinity of Pi
numbers. It was also fun to say all of the numbers they had listed because
there were so many.
I think they did very well and I love it. It represents PI day very
well. I don't really know how to describe it. Except for I ABSOLUTELY
LOVE IT! I wish I could do that too. But I'm not that creative. For PI
day me and my brother ran around the park by our house four times. We
video taped it and he showed his teacher for extra credit. It was really
Pi is a never ending number. It never terminates or repeats. I did not
realize that there were over a thousand discovered numbers in pi. When
creating this project, the student must have needed to do a lot of research.
I was also surprised that someone so old in time was able to discover
something as important and complicated as pi.
