Happy Pi Day

It’s a sad day in Ontario Education.

Today is March 14 which is, as everyone knows (or ought to know) is Pi (π) Day.

It’s an amazing number and there are so many mathematical things that you can do with π.  And they’re all just fun.

So much, I’ve actually created a Flipboard collection of stories and activities related to π.  You can access it here.

My play this morning comes from this post – Find Your Birthday Hidden in Pi.

Here’s mine…

Why is it sad in Ontario?  It’s March Break so all the fun can’t happen in class.

Maybe first day back?

And, not to be confused with Pie Day.

The content of this blog is created by me at the keyboard or as a result of an aggregator of my daily reading under the title OTR Links. On Fridays, look for my signature post "This Week in Ontario Edublogs" where I try to share some great writing from Ontario Educators. The other regular post appears Sunday mornings as I try to start a conversation about things that have gone missing from our daily lives.

One thought on “Happy Pi Day

  1. I wonder if we’ll ever have a March Break that doesn’t happen on Pi Day. Thanks for sharing this resource with us. I wonder if there might be any home ideas in here that would allow families to celebrate Pi Day together. 🙂
