Hudson Montessori Celebrates Pi Day!
On Monday, March 14, our Elementary students celebrated Pi Day with games and other themed activities.
“Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and eat pie,” according to piday.org.
Our Maker Monday weekly elementary student assembly kicked off Pi Day for the elementary students; they had fun memorizing a few digits of the pi and learned what pi means. They examined the ratio of pi and measured the circumference of different-sized circles.
Sonar is a technology used to detect objects underwater. Pictured, students played a sonar game called "find my fish" using different circumferences and cardinal directions.
Montessori philosophy teaches that children have a “mathematical mind,” made up of sensitive periods of mathematical development at different ages. Hudson Montessori School understands that many of the questions children have about the world are answered through mathematics. By providing a firm foundation of quality instruction and infusing fun into lessons through celebrations like these, we aim to create life-long learners with a love of mathematics.
