Pi day yesterday was a welcome break from the current global chaos – a lovely last day before a full month of online learning begins. Here’s what we organised if you need some inspiration for next year. I decided to ensure sustainability by only involving Year 9 (Grade 8) students so that we can run it in a very similar way next year. All Year 9 students had to sign up for one activity 2 weeks before the day.
- A Pi cake competition
2. A Pi Memorisation competition
3. A Pi Skyline competition
4. A Free-hand circle drawing competition (https://vole.wtf/perfect-circle/)
5. A Live Buffon’s Needle Experiment
6. A “10,000 Colour’s of Pi” Mural
Lesson Task: I created this task for all Year 9 students on the day with inspiration from Dan Meyer – How round is your circle? (Free-hand circle drawing task)
