Pi’s Day: Let’s square the circle! NEW educational program for third to sixth grade

NOESIS invites children to the new educational program inspired by the science of Mathematics, to reach conclusions regarding the basis set for squaring the circle with rule and diabetes.

Get ready to square the circle… or maybe not?

Do you feel that math creates problems for you that you wouldn’t have without it? NOESIS’ educational program on mathematics will solve every problem!

Every problem has a solution… or maybe not?

Mathematics is everywhere!

Mathematics exists in the chair you sit, in the pizza you eat, in your computer, in the Sun, in the universe, in music, in the human body! If you are ready to have fun and learn at the same time, give the science of Mathematics a chance and book a place in the program!

Within 90 minutes, children will experiment with the arithmetic constant π=3.14…, learn how the constant π relates to the circle and what it means to square the circle with rule and diabetes.

– 90 minutes of experiential education and entertainment.
– Conducting activities/constructions in an individual and group context.
– Commemorative gift.

Day of “p” – What is it?
On March 14, we celebrate the day of the “π” or otherwise the number 3.14159265. In mathematics, π is a mathematical constant, a symbol, which is used internationally and represents the quotient of the length of the circumference of a circle divided by the diameter of the circle. The Day of π is celebrated every year on March 14 (3/14 in the American way of writing dates), because 3, 1 and 4 are the first three digits of the number pi (π = 3.14159…) in the decimal numbering system. In 1988, the first festive event was organized for the Day of pi. Its inspirer and organizer was the American physicist and artist Larry Shaw (Larry Shaw, Lawrence N. Shaw, 1939-2017), who worked in one of the most famous Science Museums in the world, the Exploratorium, in San Francisco, USA.
