Pi Day event open to public
Pi Day

Turlock tutoring center Mathnasium will be celebrating Pi Day on Tuesday and is inviting the community to join in the festivities.

Pi Day, founded by physicist Larry Shaw, is celebrated around the world on 3.14 (March 14) in honor of the mathematical constant Pi, represented by the Greek letter 𝜋. Pi represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter and has a value of approximately 3.14. With numerous applications in mathematics, science, and engineering, Pi Day provides an opportunity to learn and appreciate mathematics and its applications in our daily lives.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating Pi Day with our Turlock community,” said Ramona Eshagh, Center Director of Mathnasium Turlock. “Our goal is to provide opportunities for kids to engage with math concepts in a fun and interactive way while building their confidence. Pi Day is a day to have fun with math, engage in hands-on activities and challenges, and learn more about the significance of Pi and its applications.”

Everyone is invited to join in the celebration. The event is open to students of all ages and math levels, and no prior math knowledge is required to participate. The event is designed to make learning about math fun and engaging for kids of all ages and includes fun-filled activities that help kids learn about Pi, circles, and other math concepts.

The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. March 14 at the Mathnasium center located at 2842 Geer Rd. in Turlock. It will be a fun filled afternoon of math-related activities and games for kids of all ages, including:

·         Pi memorization challenge

·         Pi-themed crafts and games

·         Pi Day Champion Contest

·         A free slice of pie

In addition, we will also be offering a free math skills assessment ($100 value) to students who attend the event. This assessment will help parents understand their child's math strengths and weaknesses and provide insight into how we can help them improve their math skills.
