Bring some musical fun to your Pi Day celebrations with these Pi Day songs!
First hour, I gave my students the option of singing The Pi Song which is to the tune of “Are You Sleeping?” My students did not want to participate.
So, I made a fool of myself and sang the song by myself. For the rest of the day, I didn’t give students the option of singing. I just announced, “Now, we are going to sing The Pi Song. It’s to the tune of “Are You Sleeping?”
After singing a few bars of the original, I asked, “Are you ready? We’re going to sing together on the count of three.” And, all of my classes participated.
My second period Algebra 2 class really got into the song, and they didn’t want to stop singing it.
We sang the song at least twice in all of my later classes. The janitor came in the room to empty the trash during one of the songs, and I’m pretty sure that she thinks I’m crazy. Oh well…
We also took a little over three minutes to learn what pi sounds like. My band students found this video to be riveting!
One of my students proclaimed, “This is proof that math can be beautiful! And, I didn’t think I would ever say that.”
