Give your students opportunities to think about math in fun, relevant ways.
Ready to celebrate Pi Day? We hope you're planning on enjoying a nice slice of pie. We certainly will be!
Here are a few fun activities you can use to celebrate Pi Day with your students and get them thinking mathematically.
Show students this YouTube video where pi is calculated with actual pies! (The video is only... wait for it... 3:14 minutes long.)
In addition, PiDay.org has a ton of suggestions directly from teachers on how to celebrate in your classroom. They shared everything from having students measure circumference and diameter of pies to making Pi bracelets to a Pi Day Olympics!
