Students from Milford High School (MHS) celebrated π Day on March 14, highlighting the various uses of the number 3.14. Most known in the equation to find the circumference of any circle, π is also used in the fields of finance to understanding the universe.

“The concept of pi is important to mathematics because of its relationship to the circle; it is a constant representing the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter,” said Tina Hillagoss, Mathematics teacher at MHS. “Since pi is found in so many different equations  in math, physics and other sciences, it is considered one of the most important mathematical constants.”
