# Pi Day 2020

**RVS Pi Day Recitation Contest**

**Pi Day Ideas and Inspiration**

**When:** Pi Day (RVS will celebrate on Friday March 13th this year)

**What:** Students will recite digits of Pi. A spreadsheet will be used to track the total digits recited by each participating school and the record holder for your school.

**How:** You will need one laptop connected to a projector in a central location. You will need one person recording digits recited into a spreadsheet, and one (or more) people listening/checking digits being recited.

**Why:** To give a place/space to celebrate math! Teachers who participated last year can attest to the excitement present at these events. It’s amazing hearing students cheering for math!

**Contact: Trevor Armstrong (tarmstrong@rockyview.ab.ca) **at W. H. Croxford to find out more and register your school ASAP no later than *Wed March 11 2020. *
