World Math Day 2017

World Math Day or Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

The first World Maths Day was held on March 14, 2007. Students around the world take part in online competitions. It is a day to celebrate math and enjoy playing with numbers.

The Math teachers of grades 1 to 5 have planned meaningful and fun activities to mark the special day. Students were engaged in center activities where they enjoyed solving puzzles, matching fractions, competing with each other and went live online using Mathletics. It was a cheerful atmosphere with math songs playing in the background. 

It was so pleasing to see all students so excited and happy. It is a day to remember  that math might be tough sometimes but it is always fun.
