Ms. Baynes' Class Celebrates Pi Day

Happy Pi Day from Ms. Baynes' students!

Today in math class Ms. Baynes' students measured many different circular objects to derive an approximation of Pi. Students measured the circumference & diameter of their circles and then divided the circumference by the diameter. Students were shocked to find that they all came up with approximately the same number! Students then learned the history of Pi and a little rap song to remember that Pi is a never ending number but it begins with 3.14159 - all that was missing from our great class was some real pie!
