Pi (3.14) Day at Fairview

If one day of the year screams Party! in math class, that day is March 14 (3/15 due to 3/14 falling on Sunday). Each year students in Fairview Elementary School's AIG Math Program take a break from the normal routine to plan a special celebration in honor of pi, or the number 3.14...

* March 14 also happens to be the birth date of Albert Einstein -- which makes the day an extra special one for planning math challenges and math fun!

Pi Day activities are meant to enrich and deepen students' understanding of the concept of pi. Activities will include investigations of the value of pi, special pi projects, and parties with pie or other kinds of "pi."
