Pi Day Word Search Activity

Mar 1, 2021 | Crescent Springs
As mathematicians, March is one of our most favorite times of the year. It's when we celebrate the beloved mathematical constant, pi.
 
Why do we make such a big deal out of pi? Because pi is a big deal. This irrational number that begins with 3.14 and goes on forever helps us understand so much about our universe. We first learn about pi when measuring circles, but pi is also used to talk to satellites, to measure how fast and powerful a computer is, and even to study the structure of an eye. Pi is used every day to make calculations in physics, engineering, modern construction, space exploration, and so much more. Pi is all around us, and it helps the world go ‘round (and ‘round).
 
Here is a fun activity to do with your student. Look for words that are circular objects and see what you can find!
