At the Middle School yesterday, Ms. Kousoulis’s classes celebrated Pi Day! They explored how to get pi by using string and a ruler to measure the circumference and diameter of various circles. They learned that no matter what size circle you measure, the ratio of the circumference and diameter will always equal pi!
