Academies at GBDS Fifth Graders Participate in a Tasty Science Activity

This week Academies at GBDS students in grades one through eight celebrated Math Pi Day which is traditionally on March 14 (3/14). Pi is the Greek letter which is the symbol used to represent the constant ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter no matter the circle’s size. Pi is usually represented by the number 3.14. Each class was treated to a fun hands-on lesson to highlight what Pi really is. All students were asked to bring in circular containers of non-perishable food for the Pi Day lesson which was then donated to the Jewish Federation’s March Mega Food Drive. Lessons were led by Ellen Bloomberg or Sandy Blanke from the math department. To complete the celebration all students were given a piece of Pi (pie). How amazing to be able to turn a math lesson into a mitzvah by helping to address food insecurity in our local Jewish community!
