About

falling-digits-thinWelcome to TeachPi.org, the first and best place on the Web for teachers who want to find or share ideas for Pi Day activities, learning, and entertainment. We believe that promoting an enthusiasm for learning, through celebration and creativity, will lead only to a richer classroom environment and a deeper appreciation of mathematics.

Besides being a center for teaching ideas and resources, we’ve become your first stop for funny, smart, tongue-in-cheek tributes to the number pi. Our original gangsta rap, “Lose Yourself (In The Digits),” a parody of the well-known Eminem hit, has been performed live in front of hundreds of students, and has been enjoyed by teachers and students in classrooms around the world. The release of our original sappy love ballad, “Loving Pi,” has found a large audience as well. We will continue to create our own content, and try to direct you via links to the best Pi Day creations on the Web.

Finally, we believe that mathematics classes are far too often isolated from other subjects, whereas courses like English and History often overlap and interact. To this end, we will strive to produce interdisciplinary content, both in stories and activities, for use either inside a math classroom, or as a way to invite other teachers to share in a school-wide Pi Day celebration.

Make sure to check in with us each year as Pi Day approaches, or any time you’re teaching about pi, to see what fun and useful things we might have in store for you. Thanks for visiting TeachPi.org, and please, write us and tell us what you’d like to see here. Pi is our favorite number, and together let’s make this pi’s favorite Web site.
