Lesson from Pi Day goes viral
Canterbury teachers make learning fun. Pi Day (3.1415) was just one example, and we caught it on video. Mr. Torwelle ended his lessons on Pi with a performance and PowerPoint presentation his math students will never forget.
The video ended up going viral on Facebook with more than 40,000 people reached, 348 shares and 15,000 views. The post was used as a national case study on Word of Mouth marketing and the power of video in social media in the Finalsite Blog.
"The lyrics are by Jeff Wilson, one of my math teachers," said Mr. Torwelle. "And he is one of the reasons I chose a profession where I get to be excited to go to work every day." Just as Pi goes on forever, so does this musical lesson - it is six minutes, but well-worth it.
