Students in Elizabeth Clarke’s math classes joined the Pi Day celebrations around the world on Wednesday, March 14, 2018. According to the piday.org website, “Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant, or the the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.” Students rotated in different math centers. In one activity students measured diameter and circumference and then divided to find pi. In another activity students had to figure out the best deal on three pizzas based on the price per square inch of pizza.
