I walked into the upper elementary classroom this morning and happened upon Ms. Courtney playing her ukelele while she and her students sang Mathematical Pi. Pi day is (of course) 3/14, not today, but the upper el students are readying themselves for the big day. I also happened upon a couple of upper el students working on their memorization of pi. Both students had memorized decimals well into the hundreds (purely voluntarily).
For your enjoyment, here are the lyrics to Mathematical Pi, sung to the tune of, what else, Don McLean’s American Pie. You’ll be humming this all day long!
