Math lovers have been known to celebrate the Joys of Pi, and this website offers many opportunities for celebration! The site is based on David Blatner's book of the same name; however, it contains many links and resources for learning about Pi. The most in-depth portion is the links section which contains a long list of Pi links around the web such as Pi History, Pi Mysteries, and Fun with Pi. Who knows, you may want to follow the link to purchase a Pi tie!

Caution: there is a link to American Pi which is a spoof on the movie, American Pie, and may contain some adult themes.

In the Classroom

Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. A good activity for this introduction is to complete the matchstick activity as a class (you could have students or small groups of students draw their answer on an index card to show you). Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. Enhance student learning by asking teams to report back on interesting Pi facts or information found using a video explanation tool like FlipGrid, reviewed here. FlipGrid provides a tool for video responses to a question along with comments from peers. Include The Joy of Pi site with your Pi Day celebrations!
