To celebrate Pi Day, math classes at Braden River and Nolan middle schools ate pie and completed Pi lessons March 14.
Although homophones with different meanings and spellings, coupling pie and Pi was a no-brainer today.
In celebration of Pi Day March 14, East County schools served up chocolate cream, apple, cherry and other pie variations.
Braden River and Nolan middle schools' math teachers gave their students sweet treats throughout the day, while also leading lessons on topics that involved Pi.
Students used string, construction paper and rulers to measure circles and determine the diameter and circumference of the shapes.
Nolan students competed to see who could recite the greatest number of digits of Pi.
"These events are a fun way to get students excited about math," Braden River Middle math teacher Faith Hipple-Bench said. "A lot of people have a negative feeling about math, but this shows it can be fun; it's more about problem solving than memorization."
