Math Monday: Pi Day

Pi Day activities for middle school students

Happy Math Monday!
This month the Math Mondays Blog Hop is all about Pi Day.
I love Pi Day!  Last year was the ultimate Pi Day, but I have already seen t-shirts and signs that refer to “rounding up” this Pi Day. 3.14.16!  ;)

I have 4 ideas to share that will make your Pi Day a blast!

1 Invest in “pi pencils”
A few years ago, my colleague and I invested in a few boxes of pi pencils.  Purchase them on Amazon here.
They make a great little gift for your math students or use them as prizes.

2 Want to be “Pi-lingual”?
I invested in this amazing resource from MissMathDork.  Inform your students all about pi in a fun, interactive way.

3 Tell a corny joke
Now you can go all out like I love to tell jokes with a colleague over the loudspeaker during morning announcements.  Or if that’s not really your style just share a corny joke with your students or write it on the front board.
“What do you get when you divide the circumference of a jack o’lantern by its diameter?  Pumpkin Pi!”

4 Engage students in some Pi Day trivia
I love to ask my students some neat trivia questions.  Did you know Albert Einstein was born on Pi Day in 1879?
