PI day

“Probably no symbol in mathematics has evoked as much mystery, romanticism, misconception and human interest as the number pi”
~William L. Schaaf, Nature and History of Pi

    Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi and talk to their friends about math.

    We are going to celebrate Pi Day by designing buildings and creating a skyline. Each number will be a different building.

   - Colour cardboard DIN A4
   - Newspaper, magazines, and other paper for the collage
   - Scissors
   - Glue

Building measures
    - Width: 7 cm  
   - Heighth: Each student will be given one of the Pi numbers. This number will be multiplied by 3 cm and the result number will be the height.

     Each student will decorate their building as their wish. It could be a house, a garage, a shop, a skyscraper, etc.
