Pi Day: A BreakoutEDU Digital

Happy Pi Day! Well – almost. 🙂 Pi Day is coming up on March 14 and I thought, “What could be a fun way to celeberate Pi Day with students?”

Enter…”Pi Day!” BreakoutEDU Digital!

The Topics:

In this BreakoutEDU, students will learn:

  • About the number π.
  • Trivia facts about the number π.
  • About radius and diameter.
  • How to calculate circumference and area.

Age/Grade Levels:

The above topics most relate to the 6th-8th grade CCSS Geometry standards.  However, I designed the game to be an introduction and contain very basic skills to allow more ages to participate, particularly students who have no knowledge of this topic.

Digital Tools Used:

In this BreakoutEDU, I have used the following digital tools and resources:

  • Google Forms (of course!)
  • Google Sites
  • Google Drawings
  • Hidden/Embedded Links
  • Letter/Number Ciphers

Most of the BreakoutEDU requires students to answer problems on Google Forms but they do have to find the forms and/or break into the forms to solve the problems.

Will you be celebrating Pi Day with your students? If so, what are some other ways that you celebrate this math-y day?!

  1. Hi! It appears there is no link on the Radius and Diameter page. I have clicked everywhere! I am trying to solve this ahead of time so I am sure I know the answers when I do it with my students. Would you be willing to provide any hints? Thanks!

  2. Hi,
    I cannot click the link at all- it tells me I don’t have access. Is there any way you could share it with me directly?

    1. Hi Amanda,

      That’s very strange. Would you be able to send me a screenshot? I have not had this issue in the past and know several schools that did this activity yesterday.

  3. Hi! I’m new to Breakouts, but I think my students would love this! I am trying to work through this before inviting my kids to play, and I’m lacking the Ten Letter Code and Two Digit Code. I have a couple questions:
    1. I can’t access the youtube video on “The Number Pi” page. Is it located somewhere else?
    2. Am I missing something on the Pi Trivia page or is it just for fun?
    Thank you for your help!

  4. Hello,
    I know we fixed this last year but I’m stuck again with the same problem and I can’t remember what we did! I took a screenshot but I can’t upload it here, it won’t allow me to do so. Is there somewhere else I can send it?

  5. Hi Meagan, I cannot access the edpuzzle on the Radius & Diameter page. Do you have the link or another video to use to complete that page of the breakout? Thanks!
