Math is in the Air!

Math is in the air this week as we close in on that most special of mathematical holidays, pi day.

Pi Day is only a week away, and I for one can’t wait! I’ve emailed our school secretary so pi day will be included in our weekly bulletin. I’m trying to consciously make students appreciate some of the cool things about math (I try to do this all the time, but sometimes get stuck on autopilot teaching procedures and projects).

In preparation for Pi Day, I’ll be posting some links to amazing mathematics over the next week.

To begin, you all remember the interdisciplinary geometry-art project on fractals I did last year? Well, these middle schoolers have gone even deeper into the world of fractals and produced some beautiful works of art, as part of their Fractal Club! Go to this link and check out the video. (Thanks to Ceilon Aspensen for sharing the link on facebook.)

Have a great pi week, and I’ll see you again soon!
