#### For all those math teachers out there that want to teach more about Pi Day 3/14

#### great ideas for classroom activities

#### SO many Pi Day activity ideas =)

Happy Pi Day!

#### Pi Day, Students Cut, Holidays

#### Hat sizes must be related to the circumference of the head. The circumference of an adult’s head usually ranges between 21 and 25 inches. The head’s circumference divided by pi gives us the hat size.

#### Activities, like "cut it", where students cut the circumference into diameter pieces. How many can be cut? A little more than 3. Pi: 3.14. So cool!

#### PI DAY! Explore Pi with these great activities for kids that you can do right now with household items. Also contains lots of links to learn more about Pi.

#### March 14th is a fantastically mathematical day. Pi Day. Accept the challenge. The Pi Day Challenge is a series of puzzles that are logic-based. A team of logicians adapted or created these puzzles - some require research, some require mathematics, some require pure savvy.

#### Without the Exploratorium, we might never have had an official Pi Day celebration. In 1988 Exploratorium physicist Larry Shaw started the tradition, and it was finally recognized by Congress in 2009. The Exploratorium highlights some great hands-on activities, and there is also a great list of Pi-related links.

#### Pi PI is among the significant constants of mathematics and equivalent to 3.14159 (approx). In Euclidean geometry PI represents as a ratio of the circumference of a circle to its breadth which is equal to the ratio of the area of a circle to the square of the radius of a circle. PI is used in many formulae in science, mathematics and also used in engineering. PI cannot be shown as a fraction m/n, (m and n are integers) because it is an irrational number.

#### Succulent, Spirals, Pattern, Nature, Sacred Geometry, Fibonacci Sequence, Golden Ratio

#### the golden ratio is seen over and over in nature. fractals occur in nature as well...a basic shape occurring over and over in a plant making a pleasing pattern

#### Why do we try to create beauty when God has already perfected the technique? The golden ratio is seen over and over in nature. Fractals occur in nature as well...a basic shape occurring over and over in a plant making a pleasing pattern.

#### This spiral aloe plant (Aloe polyphylla) is easily recognizable by the five-armed swirling pattern that its leaves grow in. What’s your favorite shape in nature? (Image credit: Flickr CC/brewbooks)

#### Fibonacci Sequence Illustrated by Nature - Fibonacci Spiral Aloe (The Fibonacci sequence starts with the number 1. Each additional number is the sum of the two numbers preceding it. For example 1+0=1, 1+1=2, 2+1=3, 3+2=5, 5+3=8 and so on. )

#### The aloe plant is truly amazing, see how perfectly its peddles are arranged. It displays 5 distinct spirals growing outward in the counter-clockwise direction. the number of spirals in the clock-wise direction should be an adjacent number on the Fibonacci sequence, either 3 or 8. Try as I might, I don't see that, all the more reason nature outsmarts man made - BioArchitecture will always be a better design.

#### Patterns found in nature. Fibonacci, fractals and sacred geometry. This is so interesting! Kim

#### The Mathematics of Beauty The Fibonacci Sequence is a sequence of numbers where each number is the sum of the previous two—i.e., 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34…and so on to infinity. The ratio of one number to the next is approximately 1.61803, which is called “phi”, or the Golden Ratio. It’s not a magical mathematical equation of the universe, but it definitely reflects natural, aesthetically beautiful patterns. The ratio been used as the ideal proportion standard by artists and architects

"The Fibonacci sequence (often wrongly named the Fibonacci series) is the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, ... where after the first two entries, each number is the sum of the two previous numbers. Many, many papers have been written about the Fibonacci sequence and its occurrences, particularly in nature. One such occurrence is in the centre of the sunflower. Try counting the number of left-handed and right-handed spirals emanating from the centre. Amazing!"

#### Pattern, Nature, Sunflowers, Art, Sacred Geometry, Fibonacci Sequence, Golden Ratio

#### The Fibonacci sequence is a pattern of numbers that defines organic growth. This sequence can be observed in animal and plant life, the human body, and can also be attributed to success in life. Illustrated as a spiral pattern (or a series of spirals) the Fibonacci sequence is seen in such plant life as the sunflower floret and pine cone.

#### The Fibonacci effect of the flower's spirals is a way for artists to create spirals of exquisite beauty - They mimic nature and create a stunning works of art - See how using 191 hole reinforcers and Fibonacci to make a beautiufl T-shirt - Maths and Science blog- matthen

#### The golden ratio is seen over and over in nature. Fractals occur in nature as well...a basic shape occurring over and over in a plant making a pleasing pattern.

#### Amazingly, the sunflower seeds grow adjacently at an angle of 137.5 degrees from each other, which corresponds exactly to the golden ratio. Additionally, the number of lines in the spirals on a Sunflower is almost always a number of the Fibonacci sequence.

#### "It is said this Golden Ratio occurs a lot in nature, and it kind of does. One of the most often given examples, the spiral of the nautilus sea shell, is not a golden ratio spiral. Ah well… still, the golden ratio does have a role in Sunflower heads! said another pinner

#### Nature offers some amazing Math learning! The Golden Ratio - Derived from the Fibonacci numbers is what is called the golden ratio. If we take each number of the Fibonacci sequence and divide it by the previous number in the sequence (i.e. 2/1, 3/2, 5/3, 8/5), a pattern quickly emerges.

#### Fibonacci Sequence - The sunflower naturally evolved a method to pack as many seeds on its flower as space could allow. Amazingly, the sunflower seeds grow adjacently at an angle of 137.5 degrees from each other, which corresponds exactly to the golden ratio. Additionally, the number of lines in the spirals on a Sunflower is almost always a number of the Fibonacci sequence.

#### The Fibonacci sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13… Each number is the previous two added up. The ratio of two consecutive numbers approaches 1.6180…, or (1+Sqrt(5))/2, which is called the Golden Ratio. It is said this Golden Ratio occurs a lot in nature, and it kind of does. One of the most often given examples, the spiral of the nautilus sea shell, is not a golden ratio spiral. Ah well… still, the golden ratio does have a role in Sunflower heads!

#### Khan Academy - videos for science and math. The students use technology of all kinds to work on, create, and submit class work, as well as learn and study. The teachers are opened to leaving the students to work, and expect the students to be on task. This may be leaning more towards the Montessori type schooling, and I love it! Couldn't be more of a harbor for creative and critical thinking, and problem solving!

#### The Khan Academy's mission is to provide a free world-class education for anyone anywhere. They provide more than 3,000 video lessons in math, science, history and other subjects starting at 3rd grade level. The real magic to the Khan Academy is that kids (and adults) can learn at their own pace, which means they can review subjects they’re struggling with or start learning geometry a few years early if they’re the smartest kid in the class.
