Getting Ready for Pi Day Tomorrow

One of the Keynote speakers for PETE&C (my state's technology conference) this year was Danica McKellar who used to play Winnie Cooper on the TV show, The Wonder Years. Danica s a mathematician! She has a series of books and a website (called Kiss My Math which is also the name of one of her books) dedicated to getting girls to like math. Since Pi Day is coming up tomorrow I decided to share the video she shared with us during the conference. Enjoy this Sugar Plum Pi Day video! It is part of a longer video that she shares in a Internet Program called Math Bites.

What to do for Pi Day... March 14th...

I am setting up my Maker Space in the Library for a teacher in-service day tomorrow. I keep hoping that teachers will start to see the possibilities and want to come down and use the space! I am setting up a station for Fibonacci Art, it was one of the student's favorite activities when we set up the Maker Space in December. Today I came across another Math/Art project and this involves a Pi Day Skyline. I know I am going to set this up for students on Monday, March 14th... how about you? Enjoy your Pi Day!
