Math Pi Day celebrated at Paw Paw Schools
Paw Paw Schools celebrated Math Pi Day from kindergarten to 12th grade on Wednesday, March 14.
Each student had a round food for lunch and a round pie for snack.
Students in grades k-sixth spent time looking at the digits of Pi and created a bracelet with black and red beads representing odd and even digits.
Students in seventh-12th grade threw frozen items and pencils on a grid. The data gathered from the tossing and crossing line grids was used to create the value of Pi.
Students in grades seven-12 also worked for the next 22 days (fractional value of Pi is 22/7) for a Pi celebration on April 27. Students worked to improve their grades, homework submission, attendance and benchmark testing by a value of Pi (3.14%). Each successful student joined the celebration of his or her improvement eating pie, watching a math video and more Pi activities during math classes on April 27.
Martin’s Grocery Store in both Cumberland, Md. and Winchester, Va. funded the purchase of the food needed for the activity and the round snacks.
Class aide Nicole Crispino and volunteer Erica Smith organized the elementary activity supplies.
