Pi Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical constant pi. The Greek letter π is used in mathematics to represent Pi.
Each year on 14th of March, Meridian math teachers take a break from the normal routine to plan a special celebration in honor of pi. March 14 also happens to be the birth date of Albert Einstein – which makes the day more special for planning math fun.
Meridian Pi Day activities are meant to enrich and deepen students understanding of the concept of pi. Activities include recitation of Pi, investigation of the value of pi, pi projects and presentations and party with pi cookies or pies. This year, Grade 7 students created amazing slide shows and presentations and informed small kids about Pi day and the number Pi. Grade 2, 3, 4 and 5 students were excited to learn more about the mysterious and never ending number. Moreover, nine of seventh graders recited more than 50 digits of pi and got extra credit from our math teacher.
Next year, on the same day we will celebrate Pi Day again. Do you want to join us? J
