On Tuesday, March 18, 2014, Dr. Ron Preston met with the Gamma Student Chapter, Mathematics Education Club to celebrate Pi Day (officially 3-14 each year). He shared history and humor related to pi. Attendees also participated in several pi related mathematical tasks appropriate for middle and high school mathematics. Everyone left for the evening with expanded knowledge of pi, as well as resources for their future classrooms. Next year Pi day falls on a Saturday, so be sure to celebrate on 3-14-15 at precisely 9:26 am and 53 seconds (pi = 3.141592653….)!!
The next Gamma Chapter meeting will be Tuesday, April 1, 2014. Our guest speaker, Ashley Grant, will share how to use paper folding to construct regular polygons. Please join us and bring a friend!
