Celebrate Pi Day

Pi Day is a holiday that celebrates the constant Pi (pronounced Pi). The Greek letter , is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi equals 3.1415926535... Thus, Pi Day is observed on March 14, since the digits in this date correspond with the first three digits of Pi. I have created a new webquest to Celebrate Pi Day. Students will learn about the meaning and the history of Pi. They will also celebrate Pi Day with various online activities.
