Today is Pi Day so I wanted to share a couple digital activity ideas. Both also come in print, if you prefer having your students work on paper.

The first is a Pi Day digital math escape room for middle school where students find either the area or the circumference of a circle, given diameter or radius. Students calculate their answers then type the correct 4-letter code to move to the next puzzle.

The next is a Pi Day digital math escape room for older kids. In some of the problems, students are asked to find the diameter or radius, given circumference or area. The correct 4-letter code will unlock the next puzzle.

My husband forwarded the Morning Brew newsletter to me this morning with this absolutely astounding story about Akira Haraguchi memorizing 100,000 digits of pi. 100 digits would be impressive, but 100,000?! The short article mentions him "mentally linking each digit with a syllable and creating a collection of epic stories from the words those syllables formed."😲
