Cash prize for square root celebrations
A California teacher said he is offering a cash prize for the best celebration of March 3 Square Root Day -- otherwise known as 03/03/09.
Ron Gordon, a teacher in Redwood City, said he is offering a prize of $339 to the revelers who present him with records of the most unique square root-themed celebration by March 27, the San Mateo (Calif.) Daily Journal reported Tuesday.
These days are like calendar comets - you wait and wait and wait and wait for them, then they brighten up your day and -- poof -- they're gone, Gordon said.
