McDaniel Memo

Friday, March 6

We made it through round one of ISTEP!!

Pi Day- 3.1415

This March 14th is a very special day in the math/science world. We will celebrate its special meaning on Friday the 13th. We will be doing activities to better understand circumference, diameter, and radius. We will also learn a little bit more on Albert Einstein, since the 14th was his birthday. I thought it might be fun if the class dresses like a scientist. They can wear lab coats, glasses, anything that makes them look like Albert Einstein.
