Pi Day

On March 14 (3/14), students at Goza Middle School participated in creative, hands-on, math-focused activities which demonstrate the constant relationship of a circle's circumference to its diameter, known as pi. The first few decimal places of pi are all that's needed for most typical calculations (3.14), but since it is an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition. Pi has been calculated to over one-trillion digits beyond its decimal point.

Once the bubbles pop, the students measure the circular mark left behind.

Discovering pi through measuring common, round items.

Circumference / Diameter + A splash of color = Fun learning!
