Celebrating Pi Day

Posted by Admin on February 22, 2016 at 10:02 AM


We recently held an All-School activity focused on the extra special number "Pi." For those who really wish they knew, Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Working in teams, students did many math puzzles to score points. The group with the highest scores won a PIE — they had the choice of apple or blueberry. The activities included calculating the average number of times team-mates could do a hula-hoop, calculating the area of a chocolate chip cookie (the cookies were amazing, and we got to eat them afterwards), some logic puzzles involving Venn diagrams, and much more. It was delicious, math fun!! Thank you Martha Muraira and the Grade 7 math class for planning a superb event!
