Another fun way to learn about pi is to create some pi art. Depending on the age and the available materials, there many types of projects you can do with your children or students.
Elementary students that have learned to do some basic operations will have a lot of fun with a coloring page project. You can download this worksheet, in which the letter π is divided into sections that need to be filled with color according to instructions. To find which color to use, the students need to solve an operation, making it a fun way to exercise in solving simple math problems.
Pi Art Grid
To celebrate the infinity of pi, TinkerLab had the idea to create this art project where you have to choose three colors, spend 14 minutes, and paint 15 boxes. Where is the infinity on this? There are countless ways to fill the grid!
Pi City Skyline
For older children, the Pi City Skyline project is an awesome way to learn the first digits of pi and at the same time create something very artistic they can even gift to their math teacher!
The idea behind this is simple. Each building in this cityscape represents a number of pi’s digits. You can create a colorful city by assigning a different color for each number, or keep all buildings black and paint a colorful sky behind.
