Celebrate Pi Day With Your Kids

kids and pi

You won’t even need to provide ice cream for this Pi Day. But that would be a nice treat.

Yes, it’s almost Pi Day once again. March 14th at exactly 1:59 PM. Where will you be? Maybe eating pie?

The fine folks at Kumon want to make it fun for kids to not only have fun, but learn in the process. That is why they are promoting Kumon Pi Day.

For those who don’t know Pi (π), it is a mathematical constant, the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Commonly approximated as 3.14159, ‘Pi’ is an irrational number with infinite decimal digits. That means it keeps on going…….forever. Think, your kid in the backseat of a day long trip asking “are we there yet?”

This year, Kumon Canada wants to help Canadian children celebrate Pi Day in a fun and exciting way. Pi Day is a great excuse to engage children in fun math challenges meant to enrich and deepen their understanding of the concept of Pi. Activities could include investigations of the value of Pi, special Pi projects and parties with pizza or other kinds of “Pi.” You know your kids best, so whatever they interested in, there is a way to insert Pi.
