Pi Day Activities for the Week Video

Several activities use Cuisenaire Rods. PLEASE PRINT using the setting of “ACTUAL PAGE SIZE.” This will ensure rods fit the pages that need the rods to fit.

There are three levels of cootie catchers. Use the one that best fits your students’ abilities. These are designed to offer practice in oral narration of operations.

The “Table it” activities are mathematical reasoning activities for Cuisenaire rods. It takes a concrete object and makes it abstract by changing the value of the rods.

For pages with no answer sheet, answers vary per student. Students may express an answer using different operations and expressions.

The last activity is a fun Pi activity to decorate your classroom. Create a paper chain of Pi up to the 103 place. Students create equations equal to each digit as they build the chain.
Extend the paper chain activity to related math concepts through constraints.
For example, if studying fractions, constrain the student to build the number using only fractions or to include at least one fraction.

If working on two or three digit equations, constrain the student to create an expression using two or three digit numbers. For example, 3 = 100 – 97.

For multiplication, 3 = 3 x 1, or require students to use more than one operation. For example, 3 = (5 x 3) – (4 x 3)
