What are you up to this Pi Day season? Each year is unique for me, as I seek new audiences with whom to share in the joy of our crazy number. In 2013, I spent Pi Day in Manhattan, speaking to a couple hundred middle schoolers who were on a field trip to the National Museum of Mathematics (or MoMath for short). It’s an amazing and still quite new institution that you should most certainly visit the next time you’re in the Big Apple. Later that day, I spoke at a private company’s Pi Day celebration. Pretty cool that Pi Day isn’t just celebrated in classrooms, eh?
This year, I’ve got three events lined up, all of which are in my home state of Colorado.
I’m excited to have three very different events on the slate this year! And my eyes and ears are always open for last-minute invitations and requests, or for ideas about where I might spend my Pi Day next year! (We’ll come back to the important topic of Pi Day ’15, or 3.14.15, in a future post!)
Okay, that’s plenty about me. What are you and your students (or your friends, family, or coworkers) up to this Pi Day? Send over your fun stories, either before or after, and perhaps we’ll collect enough to warrant a dedicated page here on TeachPi.org where they can be shared and enjoyed by everyone else!
Your Pi pal,
