For the past month, our 5/6 compacted math students have been researching the concept of Pi and preparing collaborative presentations to showcase all they’ve learned. From the origins of Pi to the history of Pi Day, even with corny jokes in-between. Each group created a ten slide Google Slides presentation and honed their public speaking skills as they presented to the class.
Today, March 14, is the official “Pi Day” celebration across the world (math geeks unite!) For those who confuse pi with pie, you will definitely want to peek at our student presentations to learn more.
Ms. Brockel, our GT teacher, is such a wonderful addition to our staff as she guides students throughout the year with enrichment projects. She invited me to their class today for a final wrap-up of presentations, then surprised me with a gift and a card signed by all the students, thanking me for my assistance with their project. I was completely surprised by their thoughtfulness!
