Day 125 (of 187) 3.14 Pi day

Day 125 (of 187) 3.14 Pi day

A day connected to numbers in many ways. Third month, fourteenth day (3.14) – the start to the mysterious number that is known as Pi…

Connected to Stephen Hawkings death day and Albert Einstein’s birthday.

A time to get pizzas for a great price….and to serve pie at school!

And some neat things are connected to Pi beyond math…

My video series takes a math turn:

I do enjoy an occasional math distraction…math can be interesting, intriguing and downright beautiful – at least when the focus isn’t “even questions today and odd questions tomorrow”. I still wonder why with subjects we feel more comfortable differentiating (reading & writing) we fight against “standard texts” but with math, so often it has seemed to be the textbook driving the lesson – and I love that educators are changing this and others like @joboaler are helping provide ideation resources to do things like PBL in math! Curious how things will go in Ontario with the provincial government saying all new teaching hires will have to pass a math test…
