This is great for a person who wants to learn more about pi, especially on or around Pi Day. Ideas are presented clearly and thoroughly with a brief introduction to several aspects of pi. The resources also do a great job providing more information on pi.
This is not suitable for middle school children. They cannot understand most of it. Also, this is not clear on the big screen.
good video but apparently memorizing 200 digits of Pi for fun doesn't have any practical application, darn
