|Pi(e) are square!|
March 14 is International Pi Day (3.14, get it?)
This year, I taught the kids about circle math terms (circumference, diameter, radius and area). I taught them the symbol of pi. I showed them how to measure around any circular object, then cut the yarn into approximate thirds. Then I showed them how this always makes the diameter.
We talked about how the number of pi is a constant in mathematical problems, and talked a little about "Area equals pi r squared."
And I made my grandmother's secret homemade caramel pie recipe.
Pie. It makes anything a good day. :)
|And you have to have a round one, since pi is about circles, right?|
