It’s Pi Day, Pi Day

At the school where I work, we celebrate March Mathness during the month of March, and on March 14, as many other schools do, we celebrate Pi Day. Each year, we encourage the students to memorize as many digits of pi as they can. This year, the three students able to recite the most digits had the opportunity to pie members of the staff, myself included.

Also new to this year was the singing of the song “Pi Day,” lyrics written/adapted by yours truly. If you’re familiar with pop culture or viral videos, you just may recognize the tune on which this is based.

There may or may not be a video of me singing this song with my students on the Internet. Google away.
