PERKINS TWP.

It was March 14 -- Pi Day, for the mathematically inclined -- and though it was a Saturday, Peter Wilken was at school taking a math test.

He wasn't being punished or making up for missed class time.

In fact, that day of equations and integers will pay off for Wilken on Friday when he receives the award for placing first in the Greater Toledo Council of Teachers of Mathematics' annual contest.
