Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) all over the world. Pi is, of course, the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. The “first known” Pi Day celebration took place in 1988, when physicist Larry Shaw and the San Francisco Exploratorium workers marched around a circular space before eating fruit pies! Pi Day has since grown in popularity as a classroom and cultural phenomenon. Keep reading for a plethora of Pi Day fun, whether you’re looking for classroom events, Pi Day gear, or a unique video to commemorate the occasion.

Math Is Fun: Measurement is a great introduction to measurement, covering length, mass, temperature, volume, time, speed, and the metric system. It also includes conversions and measurement precision. This website covers basic to advanced topics and is beneficial to both teachers and students.
To assist you in teaching measurement principles in your classroom, PBS Learning Media has a wealth of lesson plans, animations, and interactives. Every one comes with its own collection of supporting materials and standards. As an example, consider the following:
There are 25 measurement lesson plans for grades K-5 on Education.com, including some on volume and mass measurement. For children in grades 1-4, they often have hands-on measurement exercises. Measurement Conversion, Measurement Scavenger Hunt, and Ant Race Measuring are all fun games to play.
Middle-school students adore Scholastic’s Study Jams, which feature RJ and Mia. Start with Units of Measurement, then move on to Tools of Measurement, Measure Length (which is the easiest), and Customary Length Units (harder). Interactive exercises, karaoke songs, and quizzes are all common features.

It amazes me how much impact some of the skills we teach have. One of those ideas that keeps coming up is getting kids to grasp proportions and how to solve for a missing meaning in proportions. Understanding proportions assists students in understanding a number of other principles. When they hear the slope, it comes up again. Students who grasp proportions, in my experience, have an easier time interpreting slope. I used to love looking for patterns in things as a child, and proportions have that sort of pattern. Now I enjoy assisting students in comprehending these trends and seeing the light bulb go off. In this article, I’ll share twelve activities that will help students acquire the requisite proportions practice.
I was working with a group of struggling 7th graders last year, and we put in so much practice that they became proportions experts. For weeks, we experimented with proportions every day until it was second nature to them. Because of their performance, they began to look at themselves in a different light. I’ll illustrate how we went from not knowing to mastery in this post by sharing some of the things we did.
