Pi Day

by Julie Crookston

When most people here the word ‘pi’ they automatically think of a delicious dessert. However, here at Spanish Fork Junior High students are also taught to think of π, an irrational number. Irrational numbers are numbers that have a repeating decimal that never ends and doesn’t have a repeating pattern and there are millions upon millions of irrational numbers. So why do we dedicate an entire day to π? Two reasons. First, Π is special. Π is the ratio of a circle’s circumference (the distance around a circle) to its diameter. Thus π is used repeatedly in mathematics.

Seventh Grade Utah Studies Students Visit Antelope Island

On Thursday, March 16th, some of the 7th grade Utah Studies students went to Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake. 

While there they went to the Visitor’s Center where they were able to explore the history of Antelope Island and listen to a Utah State naturalist talk about the plants and animals they could see on the island. They also were able to hike to the top of Buffalo Point and view the panorama of the Great Salt Lake.
