Bailey celebrated Pi Day March 14 with hands-on math activities that even incorporated art.

Pi Day is celebrated each year on 3/14, as Pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, nearly equal to 3.14159...

All math classes participated in a partner, hands-on activity where they measured various circles. They then entered their data into an interactive computer program to evaluate the class data and draw conclusions about circles and Pi.

They also read a story book, "Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi," where the character, Radius, also measured circles and discovered Pi to save his father, Sir Cumference. They compared this data to the class data to find the common number, 3.14 (Pi), for all circles. The lesson concluded with each student designing a section of a circle to create a class art display of circles.
