3.14 Pi Day!

Here are some Pi Day activities that we did today in Math.

We started by reading Sir Cumerence and the Dragon of Pi  by CINDY Neuschwander. We each took turns reading the story aloud and enjoying the story’s use of mathematical terms as names of the characters.

Next, we enjoyed a berry pie. The students discovered that they would each receive 1/6 of the pie.

We finished by cutting, taping and clipping a circle to it’s circumference. We discovered, like in the story, that we needed 3 diameters and 1/7 more to completely wrap around our circles.

Our circles made great hats! Happy Pi Day!
