      March 14 is Albert Einstein's birthday, and it's Pi Day!    Here are some neat activities to use in celebration.

       

                TeacherFirst offers several Pi-themed lessons and resources from around the Web focused primarily on high school.  Included in the collection are some general math resources, like Simpsons Math.  There are a variety of good sources.

       

                Without the Exploratorium, there might never have had an official Pi Day celebration. This resource highlights some    great hands-on activities, and there is also a great list of Pi-related links.


                Great lesson plans for three different grade levels — preK-1, 2-3, and 4-6. There’s also interesting information about    the history of Pi and relating Pi through music.


                Features some great, free math lessons incorporating Pi. Check out the circle lessons, and list of questions for students to research the history of Pi.


                Great resources from NCTM.  also an Illuminations lesson plans section


      Enjoy and have a Happy 3.14159265358979323846264 Day!
