Pi Day is Almost Here!

I know that some math teachers make a REALLY big deal out of “Pi Day” (March 14th – 3.14). I don’t go quite so far as to make a whole day of activities. However, I did make a quick little freebie this year of an activity that I usually do at this point in the year. I let students use their creativity and create “Circle Art”!

 

If you want your copy of the freebie, just click the picture below.

I also came across a cute song on YouTube (once I got looking – I found out that there are lots) for Pi Day. It’s “Pi Pi, Mathematical Pi”!  It’s to the tune of American Pie and my grade 7’s got a kick out of it!

  1. Hi Krystal! I’m a middle school math teacher in Ohio in the U.S. I enjoyed your thoughts on Pi Day…I’m going to find that video. I told my students they could bring in pie and I bought them all a pi pencil. Other than that, I have some cute Pi Day cartoon/jokes to share. I’m always looking for ways to make my math class fun!

    • I really should have offered bonus marks for anyone who brings me a pie…apple pie is my fave! I’ll post another link here later – a blogger friend is working on a post as well and she’s got tons of links and ideas to share:) Happy Pi Day and thanks for your comment!

  3. Hello!

    I wanted to let you know about a Pinterest contest that Shaw Contract Group, a global commercial flooring company, is running through April 30. The contest, called Design Schooled, is open to teachers, who by pinning their “dream classroom,” will be entered to win a $25 gift card from donorschoose.org.

    Link to more information about the contest: http://www.shawcontractgroup.com/designschooled

    I would love it if you could help us spread the word! We aren’t trying to sell anything – our purpose in holding the contest is to research what teachers see as good classroom design. The results of which, we will apply to our product development and share with those who are designing future classrooms. Hopefully, both the contest and the results will benefit the teachers who follow your blog.

    Thanks so much for your help. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or comments you may have!
