However, for more than a dozen Beccles schoolchildren, getting their heads around it is far from pi in the sky.

Fourteen pupils from Albert Pye Primary took part in a special able maths day at Carlton Colville Primary, where the daunting subject was among their tasks.

As well as tackling tough equations, children took part in a number of challenges, putting their minds to the test.

Year 5 pupil Olive said: 'I enjoyed the trip because we learned about methods and what different signs mean.'
