Pi Day Link-Up {ALL Grades}



March 14th is better known as Pi Day to math geeks around the world! 


I LOVE Pi Day and all the math fun that comes along with it!!


I even have a Pinterest board dedicated to all things Pi called Pi R Squared. :-)


I decided to do a Pi Day Link-Up to give everyone a chance to share their awesome ideas {because I know you have some} AND to give us a great menu of choices if we're looking to change it up a bit this year.


I'll do a full-scale post on Pi Day a little later, but for now let me just share 2 quick things I've done it the past.




        Have a contest to see who can memorize the most digits of Pi {some students really 
        get into this}.


        Read Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi by Cindy Neuschwander before doing a 
        math task.  {I highly recommend her entire A Math Adventure Series...they are 
        amazingly fun!}





{Here's a set with 3 of her books that will save you a bit of cash!}







This Link-Up is open to ALL grade levels and ALL contents!  No matter who or what you teach, if you have a Pi Day post, link it right on up!




You know what to do:


  • Write a blog post about a lesson, activity, or task you have taught or would like to teach using Pi in some way.
  • Copy the Pi Day Link-Up image above and paste it into your post.
  • Link up below by pasting the link to the actual blog post, not your entire blog.
  • Share the news with others!


As several other bloggers have done lately, I've created a collaborative Pinterest board for this Pi Day Link-Up.  If you'd like to join, leave a comment with your Pinterest link so I can add you.  This board can be added to at any time you see another great idea!

Depending or participation, I may have enough ideas to create an e-book that you can offer to your readers when we're all done {with you as a contributing author}!





Enjoy :)

  3. I love that you created a Linky for Pi day! I'm not sure I'll have anything to contribute since I have preschoolers ;) but I'll pin this and pass the word along.
    I love your idea to have students try to memorize as many digits of pi as they can.

  4. I love Pi Day! I just joined the Linky (my very first) and am very excited to be part of the party. My blog has an explanation of what I do and the file for my Pi Day Edible MAth Centers.

    Thanks for throwing the party.
