Bring some fun into the classroom on Monday, March 14, in celebration of Pi Day! Here’s a joke for your elementary students: Did you know that 3.14% of Sailors are PI rates? (Ba-dam, Bing!).
Seriously, we’ve put together a short collection of Pi resources (grades K-12) for you to use, share, or modify to suit your needs. You can find the collection here, or begin by checking out a few highlighted resources below.
- Track Races activity – (Grades 6-10) Use Properties of rational and irrational numbers to track races (graphic organizer/worksheet).
- Circumference and Diameter (Grades 3-10, by MathMastery) – Understanding the equation for finding circumference helps you solve measurement problems in everyday life.
- Intermediate Level Measurement Math Kit – (Grades 3-8) Gives students the opportunity to measure various objects and use their data to determine area, volume, radius, diameter, and density.
P.S. If you need more laughs, check out the Pi Day resources on Pinterest.
