PI Day


Basic Adventure

GOAL:                                  Celebrate National PI Day and Learn the basic math concept of PI

 

The ADVENTURE:         Choose an activity to celebrate PI Day

 

REWARD IDEAS:

 

  The natural reward will come as you eat pie! Be sure to make this a FUN, even silly experience for kids.

 

 

  Let your child help plan the celebration, pick out the pies and flavors, and be a part of choosing whatever it is you plan to do.

 

  Depending on what it is that you choose to do, be sure to compliment the kids for their role and validate whatever it is they do. Whether it's telling them how yummy the pie they made is, or just telling them you love the pie they picked out, they'll love hearing those positive affirmations from you.

 

National Pi Day on March 14th recognizes the mathematical constant π. Also known as pi, the first three and most recognized digits are 3.14. The day is celebrated by pi enthusiasts and pie lovers alike!

 

 

What is PI?

Pi is the ratio between the circumference of a circle and its diameter. While the idea of pi has been known for nearly 4000 years, accurately calculating it has been something of slightly more recent mathematical development. By 2000 BC, the Egyptians and Babylonians accurately used the constant to build. Mathematicians such as Archimedes, Fibonacci, François Viète, Adriaan van Roomen, and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz all calculated pi by various methods. However, in 1706, Welsh mathematician William Jones introduced the Greek letter π to represent the ratio of a circle’s circumference; pi.

 

 

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalPiDay

 

Let's face it- unless you are a diehard mathematician, you probably use PI Day as an opportunity to enjoy PIE. Whether it's your favorite pizza pie, fruit pie, another type of dessert pie, or even shephard's pie. So, whether you celebrate PI or pie, here are some fun ideas!

 

  • Celebrate the day with a slice of a pie cut using the mathematical constant of pi.
  • Eat foods that begin with pi such as pizza and pineapple.
  • Bake pies together.
  • Host a pie-eating contest.
  • Learn more about the significance of the number π.
  • Watch the Life of Pi.
  • Play the Family PI Game: look for 3.14 in unexpected places like prices, street numbers, or license plates.
  • Find 3.14 deals in as many versions of π as possible.
  • Make a game out of PI Day facts.
  • Create Pi related Artwork.
