The National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath)  will be celebrating Pi Day (March 14) with three special events!

First, school groups in grades 5 through 7 are welcome to attend a presentation with a special guest, Luke Anderson. Mr. Anderson is the founder of the popular website TeachPi.org, and has engaged with students of all ages at Pi Day events around the country. His 45-minute presentation will lead 5th through 7th grade students through the storied history and mystery of the number, and entertain them with feats of memory and other surprises. The cost for a group to attend this event is $500, and group size is limited to 27 students and 3 chaperones. There will be two presentations: one at 10:15 am and the second at 11:15 am, and we can only accommodate four groups in each session, so eight groups in total.

Please reply to education@momath.org if your school is interested in taking one of these spots. Note that your group must consist of 5th through 7th grade students, and given the very limited availability of this program, payment in full must be received no later than two weeks in advance of the event.

Second, MoMath will be hosting an after-school pi-themed scavenger hunt through its Math Midway 2 Go (MM2GO) exhibition, including an educator-led activity highlighting the surprising appearances of pi in MM2GO. The event will take place in two sessions, from 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm and again from 4:00 pm to 4:45pm. Students ages 11 and up are welcome to attend. Please ask students to visit PiDay.momath.org for more information; note that there will be a fee to attend this program.

Third, teachers are invited to attend the Math Midway 2 Go Teacher Preview. Join us any time from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm to discover how you can bring the MM2GO experience to your school. MoMath staff will be on hand to discuss linking the exhibits to the K-12 math curriculum and the Common Core State Standards. If your school completes a booking within one week following the preview event, you will receive a discount of $100 toward booking an educator session at the school.

The preview will take place in MoMath’s Composite Gallery at 6 E 27th Street, and does not include admission to the Museum. Space is limited, so please register at MM2GOpreview.momath.org.
