Pi Day Challenge (that doesn't involve memorizing numbers!)

Every year it seems like I've added one new thing to our Pi Day festivities in sixth grade math! This time, it was a result of Pi Day falling on a Saturday (and the ultimate Pi Day at that...3.1415 = 3/14 in the year 15). On Saturday, 3/14, I am challenging my students to send me an email at exactly 9:26am with 53 seconds with the subject 3.141592653...

3.141592653...= 3/14/15 at 9:26:53

And the best part? The winner is going to get 3.14 packs of gum! Needless to say, this was quite the motivation for the sixth graders! Stay tuned for more Pi Day festivities (pictures included) as well as a post about our Blueprint Projects we are just finishing up! Happy Pi Day everyone!
