  • Pi Day Video a Real Treat! See this musical math lesson featuring Mr. Torwelle

    Posted March 14, 2015

    Happy March 14 (3.14) - Pi Day. And it is extra special this year because today is 3-14-15. It is kind of a big deal for Canterbury math teachers and their students to celebrate the day. Because Pi Day is on Saturday this year, we celebrated Friday. "Pie" was a common staple in many classrooms. Students were chanting as many of the 1 million digits of Pi as they could make it through, here's a start: 3.14159265359. Mr. Torwelle, Middle School math teacher, ended his lessons on Pi with a performance and PowerPoint presentation that his math students will never forget. Everyone (fellow teachers and students) were talking about it. Luckily, it was captured on video. Just as Pi goes on forever, so does this musical lesson - it is six minutes, but well-worth it.
