Today, I witnessed something that I felt was quite amazing. In front of myself and the rest of the class, one of my students accurately recited the number Pi to 60 digits. Not ’16’, as I initially misheard the student claim, but the big 6-0.
And the student rattled off the numbers, often in chunks of three or four, with no mistakes and only minor pausing or hesitation a few times. I followed along on the computer to verify accuracy.
