Pi Day fun!

3.14

Today our whole school celebrated Pi Day and Albert Einstein’s birthday!

We learned what Pi means: It is a number that represents the relationship between the circumference and the diameter of a circle. For any circle, the circumference will equal about 3 and one sevenths of the diameter. The symbol for Pi is the Greek letter for P, which is Pi (π).

We read these books which explored the concept in entertaining and effective ways:
