At L-Dub, on Pi Day, we mean business. "Pi (Greek letter " π ") is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. ...Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same." Got it?
This past Monday, we celebrated Pi Day at L-Dub! The girls had prepared by memorizing many (many) digits of the number Pi, families sent in delicious pies (thank you, all), and the STEAM department planned some new activities to celebrate this mathematical holiday! This year we looked closely at how the number Pi shows up in unusual places, we made our annual Pi chain, the girls made their own abacus, and they learned the Chinese method for multiplication....in Spanish!
Thanks again to families for sending in such yummy pie and to students for fully embracing the countless wonders of Math!
Oh, Math! We love you so!
