The number pi (3.14159….) is usually celebrated on March 14th. It is the ratio of a circles circumference to the diameter. The middle school celebrated on Friday March 16th instead. The party consisted of fun math activites and of course eating pie. Sixth grade decorated a t-shirt with five facts about the number pi and read the story Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi. Seventh grade decorated a paper plate with five facts about the number pi (two of which had to be the area and circumference of the plate) and made a visual representaion of the number pi in the form of a quilt. Eighth grade designed an ad for a pi product and measured pies. All classes enjoyed singing the pi song. A good time was had by all.
Emily Hample is an 8th grader here at Everest Academy. She has celebrated the number with Mrs. Roberts for the past three years. This is what she had to say about her last pi-day at Everest Academy, “It was the best one yet!”
Another 8th grader Isa Fernandez said, “I loved how everyone brought in pie to share and eat while we learned more about the number.” She is one of our international students and this was her first pi day celebration ever.
