Having Our Pi and Eating It, Too!

Since today is 3/14, also known as Pi Day, we decided to celebrate!

After talking about Pi and Pie, and playing around with homophones,

we baked our own Chocolate Fudge Pie (after all, who doesn’t love pie!) and even decorated it for the occasion.

We then headed out to a local park to share the fun with friends. Each family brought along a pie. Some diameters and radius were measured,

and the little mathematicians then solved for their circumferences and areas.

In reward for their efforts, they got to eat pie! The vote for best decorated

and best tasting pie were cast.

And what do you know, this little girl won!
