# Pi Doodle Notes (for Pi Day or Anytime!)

Regular price \$3.25 \$0.00 Unit price per

Pi "doodle notes" offer a creative, fun, interactive activity for learning what Pi Day is all about.

The doodle note set has two pages, and you can choose one or use both as an awesome way to celebrate Pi Day with your students! They'll be learning all about pi while enjoying it and relaxing at the same time.

(This resource is also available with a bundled discount inside the Pi Day Activity Bundle here)

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:

- new learning

- relaxation (less math anxiety)

- visual connections

- better memory & retention of the content!

Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

Content includes:

- approximations of Pi

- definition of "irrational"

- meaning / utility of the number pi

- room for a history fact about Pi

- room for a formula that includes Pi

- background of Euler using the greek letter to represent it

- circumference and diameter

- why we can't know or recite ALL digits of pi

Visual note taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory.  When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.

This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!

2 pages are included, plus answer keys, samples, and info.

Reviews from other teachers:

-I use this resource every year on Pi Day! Very engaging. It's so fun to teach students something outside of curriculum and watch them thrive!

-I love this resource to introduce Pi to my 5th graders. It is helps to get this concept onto their math radars for future learning.

-This was a very fun worksheet for Pi Day in upper level classes.

-Doodle notes are my new favorite math notes tool! I would love one for every single unit I teach (7th grade math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra 1). I have the students use them as the beginning page of the unit in their notes and it gives them great quick access to the most important concepts I want them to know. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Please make more!!!

-Great activity to keep my students occupied while I sliced and served pie! Also, it was very fun to see the facts that my students found. Love it!

-Thank you! I work with students with disabilities and they love to doodle and draw. This gives them that outlet but still keeps them on task!!
