Pi Day!

Happy Pi Day everyone!

Today is March 14, which can be rewritten as 3 14, the first three digits of Pi!

From WonderopolisThe circumference of a circle is its perimeter or the length around it. The distance from the center of a circle to its edge is the radius. The distance from one side of a circle to the opposite side (twice the radius) is the diameter. The area of a circle is the number of square units inside the circle.Since circles can vary in size, yet they all retain the same shape, ancient mathematicians knew there had to be a special relationship amongst the elements of a circle. That special relationship turns out to be the mathematical constant known as pi.
 Here is an article that shows 3 GIFs about how Pi actually works out. 

Here is a Time Article about the history of Pi.
In our Hyphen Class we are doing some Pi Pop Art, we are going to eat Pizza, Pie, and Oreos, and we are doing some graphing of the digits of Pi. I got a no-prep kit of activities from Momgineer.

How are you celebrating Pi day? Post below and let us know!
