Product Description
Welcome to the Pi Day Spectacular!

My students love celebrating Pi Day. Best of all, they never see it coming...calculating everything from Diameter, Radius, Circumference, Area and Volume of a Cylinder and under the ruse of fun!

Pi Day is often celebrated on March 14 (3/14 or 3.14, you know like π = 3.14 ...bear with our humor!). However, these activities are fun year round and can be used in your curriculum at any point during the school year that best fits your schedule.

We’ve included:
-A table of definitions
-A formulae sheet for your students to refer to
-An instructor page with steps to introduce your students to Pi
-A description of the five activities presented for your students
**Diameter, Radius, Circumference and Area of Common Circles
**Planet Circumferences
**Earth's Orbit Around the Sun
**Volume of a Cylindar
**The BIG BIKE Challenge!

What you'll need to provide:
Circular objects such as: pizza pan, bottle caps, paper plates, pictures of planets, several sizes of cans of food, cardboard tubes, and more. A complete list of suggested items is included in the download.

The final activity, The Big Bike Challenge, is always a hit. Don’t skip it! Reward the winners with a piece of pie (or pizza pie!) for getting the correct answer. Cheers!

Enjoy Pi Day!
