Thursday March 1st Go through the powerpoint introducing pi/phi day 2012. It covers the following information: y y y y y Every year we celebrate a certain mathematical day. We celebrate it on March 14th because this mathematical number is written out as 3.14159 This is a pretty cool number. Its called Pi. It can be found within circles or also within anything round. But Pi has been stealing the lime light. Hes the big celebrity and every wants to be his friend and to celebrate his achievements. What about the poor, less known, uncelebrated numbers? They have been misrepresented, ignored, and shunned by the school community. Well its time that discrimination STOPPED! We will no longer be a nuberist school. Its time for these downtrodden, oppressed other numbers to step out of the shadows into the sunlight. Its time that they also were worshipped, celebrated and understood. So this year, we are going to celebrate a different number. An even cooler and crazier irrational number than pi. An irrational number that can be found in nature, in beauty and in spirals. We are going to celebrate the number Phi! Unfortunately, since Phi is 1.618 It doesnt correspond to a good calendar date, but if you take the 1 to mean January and you count out 62 days from January first, you end up around now, in early March. So, were going to lead into Phi day in a few ways. o First off- for those in pre-algebra and above, rather than having a digits of pi competition, we are going to have a Fibonacci Sequence competition. The Fibonacci numbers are the numbers that are used to calculate Phi and they go like so: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 o This competition will be held March 16th o Because Phi is in spirals, we will have various ways throughout the week that you may earn Cinnamon Rolls. On Monday you can fill out a Pi/Phi Facts Scavenger Hunt worksheet and turn it in completed to DeLacy-sensei to earn a Cinnamon Roll On Tuesday and Wednesday we will have a mathscot competition. You may want to work on these now. Design your own creature that will represent mathematics at SJS. Draw this creature neatly on a large piece of paper or a poster, color it beautifully, and label it clearly. If you create a nice mathscot for me, I will give you a cinnamon roll and hang your mathscot up on my wall. People can vote for their favorite Mathscot throughout the rest of the week and the winner will get a pi on Friday. On Thursday and Friday, in math class I will present the 7th-12th graders with two math related challenges to help them earn cinnamon rolls. On Thursday and Friday 4th/5th and 6th/7th students may earn cinnamon rolls by either Making an illustration of the following poem by Nobel prize winning poet Wis awa Szymborska:

The caravan of digits that is pi does not stop at the edge of the page, but runs off the table and into the air, over the wall, a leaf, a bird's nest, the clouds, straight into the sky, through all the bloatedness and bottomlessness. Oh how short, all but mouse-like is the comet's tail!

y y y y

Or by writing their own Pi day poem. Any time during the week, if you bring in a pie and donate it to the school, you will earn a cinnamon roll. On Friday right after lunch, we will have our Pi day/Phi day competition. Each grade level will compete. 4th/5th graders and 6th/7th graders will compete reciting digits of pi. 8th/9th graders and 10th/12th graders will compete by reciting the Fibonacci sequence. Because we dont want to forget that Pi is also an awesome number, winners will be presented with pies.

Monday March 5th y y y Have digits of pi ready to hand to 4th -7th graders Have the Fibonacci sequence ready to hand out to 8th-12th graders. Make another announcement about Pi/Phi day at opening and closing.

Tuesday March 6th y y Remind students about getting the digits of pi or the numbers in the Fibonacci sequence Remind them about the various things they can do to earn cinnamon rolls during pi/phi week.

Wednesday March 7th y y Remind students about getting the digits of pi or the numbers in the Fibonacci sequence Remind them about the various things they can do to earn cinnamon rolls during pi/phi week.

Thursday March 8th y y y Remind students about getting the digits of pi or the numbers in the Fibonacci sequence Remind them about the various things they can do to earn cinnamon rolls during pi/phi week. HAND OUT scavenger hunt questions for Pi and Phi today to anyone who wants them.

Monday March 12th y y y y y BRING CINNAMON ROLLS Hand out cinnamon rolls to anyone who completed either the pi day or phi day scavenger hunt questions. Remind students to be practicing their digits for the Pi day/Phi day competition on Friday. Mathscots are due on Tuesday or Wednesday Phi day math problems or pi day poems are due Thursday or Friday.

Tuesday March 13th y y y y BRING CINNAMON ROLLS Hand out cinnamon rolls to anyone who completed mathscots Remind students to be practicing their digits for the Pi day/Phi day competition on Friday. Phi day math problems or pi day poems are due Thursday or Friday.

Wednesday March 14th y y y y BRING CINNAMON ROLLS Hand out cinnamon rolls to anyone who made a mathscot. Hang them up in Shikoku and put sticky notes next to them along with a sign saying- stick a stickynote on your favorite mathscot. Remind students to be practicing their digits for the Pi day/Phi day competition on Friday. Phi day math problems or pi day poems are due Thursday or Friday.

Thursday March 15th y y BRING CINNAMON ROLLS Hand out cinnamon rolls to anyone who completes the two cinnamon roll math problems: Cinnamon Roll earning opportunity- draw a beautiful pinecone like she did. Cinnamon Roll earning opportunity- draw a flower or pedals following the ratio of Phi. Or to anyone who made a pi day poem or illustration Remind students to be practicing their digits for the Pi day/Phi day competition on Friday. In ALL my morning math classes do the following lesson plan:

y y y

Golden Ratio There are three types of spirals- what are they? y y y Spiral of equal tightness Spiral that gets closer as you go out. Spiral that gets more spread out as you go out

Have them try to draw something that symbolizes each type of spiral y y y For the first, maybe a cinnamon bun? For the second? For the third, there are many things- snail, nautilus shell, elephant with curly trunk.

Now hand out graph paper and sharpies and a worksheet made out of the . Tell them that from the top, right hand corner of the graph paper, go 12 squares down and 12 squares left. y y y y y y y Outline the square thats located 12 squares down and 12 squares left of the right hand corner Outline the square directly above the first square you outlined. Now you have a rectangle. Record the dimensions of this rectangle in your table (1x2) Construct a square that has side lengths equal to the first two squares you just made to the left of the rectangle. Now you have a new, bigger rectangle. Record the dimensions of this rectangle in your table (2x3) Now construct a square below this rectangle that has the same side lengths as the length of the rectangle. Now you have a new, bigger rectangle. Record the dimensions of this rectangle in your table (3x5)

y y y y y y y y y y

Now construct a square right of the biggest rectangle that has the same side lengths as the length of the rectangle. Now you have a new, bigger rectangle. Record the dimensions of this rectangle in your table (5x8) Now construct a square above the biggest rectangle that has the same side lengths as the length of the rectangle. Now you have a new, bigger rectangle. Record the dimensions of this rectangle in your table (8x13) Now construct a square left of the biggest rectangle that has the same side lengths as the length of the rectangle. Now you have a new, bigger rectangle. Record the dimensions of this rectangle in your table (13x21) Now construct a square below the biggest rectangle that has the same side lengths as the length of the rectangle. Now you have a new, bigger rectangle. Record the dimensions of this rectangle in your table (21x34) Now, try to draw a spiral by connecting the corners of each of the squares you have drawn. Have a question or two asking them for the pattern in the rectangles above and introducing them to the Fibonacci Sequence.

Now hand out glitter glue and pinecones and have them count the spirals and mark them on the pinecones. If I can, have them do it also with artichokes. Then show them minutes 3-end of Vi hart doodling in Math Class: Spirals, Fibonacci and being a plant part 1. Cinnamon Roll earning opportunity- draw a beautiful pinecone like she did. Then show them doodling in Math Class: Spirals, Fibonacci and being a plant parts 2 and 3 Have a guided worksheet for them to fill out how Phi relates to the Fibonacci Sequence y y y y y y Why do plants want to angle their leaves? Why are nice fractions not good enough? Draw the symbol for Phi Look at the fractions shes using to find Phi. What do you notice? What are Lucas numbers? Once the videos are finished, give a summary as best you can as to why plants grow this way. Cinnamon Roll earning opportunity- draw a flower or pedals following the ratio of Phi. Then have them do the golden ratio in bodies and the golden ratio in art activities. We wont finish this lesson plan today

Friday March 16th y y y BRING CINNAMON ROLLS Make sure to have copies of the digits of pi and the Fibonacci sequence on hand Hand out cinnamon rolls to anyone who completes the two cinnamon roll math problems: Cinnamon Roll earning opportunity- draw a beautiful pinecone like she did. Cinnamon Roll earning opportunity- draw a flower or pedals following the ratio of Phi. Or to anyone who made a pi day poem or illustration In ALL math classes finish up the above lesson plan. During the hour long lunch have competitions first between the o 4th/5th graders reciting pi o 6th/7th graders reciting pi o 8th/9th graders reciting Fibonacci numbers o 10th/12th graders reciting Fibonacci numbers o Announce the Mathscot winner. o Present all winners with pies.
