Taking a selfie with some of their castmates, including senior Aidan Cox, who plays Buddy the Elf, junior Brooke Ferguson shows off a sign presenting the arrival of “Elf. This year’s musical, “Elf” runs Dec. 1-3 in the CPHS PAC. “[Learning a new script is] always kind of a challenge,” Ferguson said. “You get a new cast and you get your own part. I’ve never worked closely with these people before. It’s a different environment and doing character work with someone new, trying to partner work and scene work is interesting. The script is good and it has a lot of jokes, it’ll be a lot of laughs.” Photo by Brooke Ferguson

Dressed as “H-E-B Buddy,” senior Logan Hedges entertains shoppers during a shift at H-E-B. Hedges has fun on the job, as there’s significantly less pressure than other jobs he has had. “I [used to umpire] little league baseball, and it’s definitely less stressful,” Hedges said. “There’s not much [that can go wrong] scanning groceries. Making a bad call in baseball is so easy.”

On the Sunday after we arrive, we always take family pictures on the beach—no amount of complaining about the temperature of the sand or the angle of the sun in our eyes will convince our mom that these pictures are unnecessary. Generally, the beach is associated with warmth and sun, but Thanksgiving week can get cold and even rainy making for some long family picture sessions. But with all the practice we’ve gotten over the years, I am happy to say that I am a pro at taking jumping pictures, getting my jeans only half full of sand, and timing everything just right to get the beautiful sunset in the background. Despite all the hours we spend posing on the beach, I always really like the pictures in the end as well as the time that we get to spend together as a family.

A smaller piece of pi

     For centuries, the value of pi has remained indefinite. While supercomputers have solved for the value of pi to 4.5 trillion places, the exact value of this irrational number has never been solved because the digits go on infinitely. Due to the lack of accuracy in measuring the number, the International Pi Society has made the decision to use the exact value of three in place of pi.

     When the convention declared this change would take effect April 1 of this year, many math educators became excited about quickly implementing this new policy.

     “We will take care of this change immediately,” Troy Inman, Algebra II teacher, said.  “I can even go back and improve grades from previous six-weeks to compensate.”

     With such excitement about this change, there seems to be almost no downside.

     “Some ‘super-mathematicians’ might be upset,” Inman said, “but that doesn’t really matter.”

     In implementing this policy, educators hope all math students will appreciate this simplification and that their performance will improve.

     “It will definitely be easier to teach my math classes,” Inman said.  “Most kids can multiply by three in their head.  Math grades will go up dramatically.”

     After such a warm welcome to this change, it is curious why the irrational value for pi has been in place for so long. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the rounding of pi, many other areas of the math world will be simplified. The Trigonometric Convention has already begun to discuss the simplification of trig functions.  Though this simplification is expected to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated, the convention expects to see this change implemented by April 1 of 2012.
