Need a few ideas for learning about Pi with kids? Songs can be a quick way to teach a concept, especially a mathematic one. I’ve screened all of these videos so that they are kid friendly and ready to watch as you teach about Pi day with your child.
What is Pi?
Pi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same.
The diameter of a circle is the distance from edge to edge, measuring straight through the center. The circumference of a circle is the distance around.
