Hockey Player Pi by Kat326 Hockey Player Pi by Kat326
So in my Contemporary Mathematics class, we have one big final project instead of an exam. Our project could be anything we wanted, as long as it involved some sort of number sequence. I chose to take an assortment of 15 NHL players, and make a drawing-collage of them so that their jersey numbers spell out the first 20-ish digits of Pi.

From left-to-right:
Row 1: Jack Johnson, LA Kings; Steve Mason, Columbus Blue Jackets; Jaroslav Halak, St. Lous Blues; Chad LaRose, Carolina Hurricanes; Thomas Vanek, Buffalo Sabres

Row 2: Derek Morris, Phoenix Coyotes; Greg Zanon, Minnesota Wild; Alexander Ovechkin, Washington Captials; Matt Gilroy, NY Rangers; Bobby Ryan, Anaheim Ducks

Row 3: Kari Lehtonen, Dallas Stars; Jason Jaffray, Calgary Flames; Andrei Kostitsyn, Montreal Canadiens; Luke Schenn, Toronto Maple Leafs; Jamie McGinn, San Jose Sharks

I am ridiculously happy with this piece. I just love everything about it. It was a ton of work to do in just a few days, but the final outcome was totally worth it. C:

Witty and well executed. Might even be better as a sort of puzzle. Its like TJ Oshe and the pencil neck geek from Big Bang Theory had a baby and....never mind.

Ran out of time. :[ I was originally going to do 1 player for every team, but I had to cut that in half because of the project deadline.

Is contemporary mathematics always this awesome? Looks like it could beat the crap out of calculus any day.

Super work!
