is an annual opportunity for maths enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about maths, and to eat pie.
First we wanted to organise our international contest "Rubic Cube Solving" on 14th March but it is on Saturday this year, so we changed our plans and also with the regard to closing of schools during coronavirus pandemic we are going to celebrate it these ways:
(A) In Poland pupils are encouraged to watch videos in which the main theme is mathematics:
(B) In Slovakia students got the home assignment related to "Pi Day":
1, choose one movie from the list (or if you have your own idea what to watch, write it to the teacher, and s/he will dis/approve it), after watching it, write "For and Against Essay" on it, 200-220 words (or more if you like:)
2, The List:
- The Man Who Knew Infinity (with outstanding Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel as a genius mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan)
- The Imitation Game (with Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing)
- Good Will Hunting (the scri pt was written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and started their Hollywood career)
- Gifted (with "a gifted" Chris Evans)
- Hidden Figures (with marvellous Octavia Spencer)
- Ex-Machina (with Alicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac about the Turing test)
