The following pages give information about a Pi Day Scavenger Hunt we are inviting our high school students to participate in this year (2008). Our hope is to involve a wide range of students school-wide and to bring a little extra attention to Pi Day. A few items of note:

π The first page is an announcement that is appearing in our Daily Memo for all students to hear.

π The second page is the information sheet to be handed out to all interested students.

π As is probably obvious, some of the scavenger hunt items have mathematical value and some are strictly for fun.

π After using the first few digits of pi for the first-place cash prize of $31.41 (even though the decimal is in the wrong place), we are following up with 5 gift certificates from Domino’s for free pizza and 9 coupons from McDonald’s for free food items. Managers at our local restaurants were kind enough to donate the coupons.

The Math Department is sponsoring a Pi Day Scavenger Hunt. Participants will be asked to locate 14 different categories of items; the number of each item required will be related to a digit of pi. Each item must be turned in as explained on the Scavenger Hunt list, and all entries must be school appropriate. In order to qualify for the first-place prize, a student must correctly meet the requirements for at least 10 of the 14 items. The person who first turns in the most items (correctly meeting the requirements) will win a prize of $31.41. Other prizes will be awarded to some of the runners-up. You can get more information and pick up the Scavenger Hunt list from any math teacher. Get your list right away, as collecting all the items may take a few days. Deadline for turning in entries is Thursday, March 13, at 3:14 p.m.

PI DAY SCAVENGER HUNT After you have collected your items, label each part of your entry, place everything in a folder or large envelope with your name on it, and turn the folder in to Mrs. Burke in room 8. Turn in your entry early, as time may determine the winner. You must turn in the items from at least 10 of the 14 categories to be eligible for the first-place prize. All entries must be school appropriate. You must be able to clarify or verify items in your entry, if requested. 3 geometric solids which have circular cross-sections (turn in pictures, labeled with the names of the solids)
