Pi Day

Mar 20 Tue
Tuesday, March 20, 2018 - 08:00

If there comes a day where MAS students would scream "let’s party!" in math class, you should know it's March 14. Each year on 3/14, teachers in classrooms across the globe take a break from the normal routine to plan a special celebration in honor of pi, or the number 3.14. March 14 also happens to be the birth date of Albert Einstein -- which makes the day an extra special one for planning math challenges and math fun! According to MAS’s Math Department, Pi Day activities are meant to enrich and deepen students' understanding of the concept of pi. Activities might include investigations of the value of pi, special pi projects, and parties with pizza or other kinds of pie.
