Team X celebrated Pi Day with activities that were interdisciplinary. March 14th is recognized as Pi Day because of its connection to the first three digits of Pi, 3.14. Students wrote poems and made artistic creations to explain Pi. They also had a computer scavenger hunt to learn interesting facts about Pi, one of which was to locate the position of their birthdate in the numbers of Pi. Mathematically they measured several objects to find the relationship between the circumference and the diameter of their circular object and see how close they could get to 3.14. Lastly, they made a histogram, identifying how many of each digit there were in the first 50 digits of Pi. Of course, they were also treated to pie and oranges! Many students also made treats for their classmates.
