Happy (Belated) Pi Day

March 20, 2017

We celebrated today because we missed the real pi day because of march break.  Pi day is celebrated March 14th (3/14).

We had an amazing recitation of pi…


We watched a Vi Hart video all about pi


We also experimented to determine the relationship between the circumference and diameter of a circle.  To make it more tasty we used licorice laces to make the circles.


We had to approximate some circles, so our data wasn’t perfect.


We made lines of best fit and looked at the rate of change.  On average it was a bit more than 3.  We know it should have been pi.


We ate mini pie and sang our favourite math carol “oh number pi”

All in all it was a good celebration!
