Happy Pi Day!

Friday is 3.14.2008. And that means it's Pi Day.

No, really. Every year, people actually celebrate that little number with lots of decimal places on this day. You can read all about it here. And teachers, there are some ideas for Pi Day classroom activities. If you try any out, let us know how you did. Take a pic, and send in an iReport.

Enjoy the pi.

    I can't believe that the U.S . is in the mess we are in. We are suppose to be a very strong nation. I think if we stop being so nice to every nation that wants help from us, and take care of our own, this country would be a better place for all.

    My teacher took it a little to far by how he did a paper chain, gave away pie, and had us(eighth graders) sing a cheesy pi day song and recorded it.

    Pi stinks, I like fractals, quadratics, and matrices.
