Pi Day!

Today, fifth graders had a fun day in math class playing with PIE, as in 3.14 pi, the ratio between a circle's circumference to its diameter.
They students turned the digits of pi into a bar graphs and made fun cityscapes. They also created a "Piaku" (as in haiku), which is a poem that has nine lines, and each line uses the number of words that corresponds to the first 9 digits of pi. They also created pi suns using a ruler to measure the different rays of the sun that followed the same order of pi.
It was a fun way to get to know circles and pi, which they will start learning more about in geometry. Thanks Mrs. Benzing, Ms. Rossi, Mrs. Conahan, and Mrs. Riggin for a fun math day!
