For Pi Day, Austintown Middle School beccame Mathopolis
Mike Sauner knew what he was having for lunch Wednesday: pie.
The Austintown Intermediate School principal came to work prepared. He donned goggles, a hair net and trash bag over his torso because he wasn’t eating the pies – he was the target of them.
“It just gives you a chance for students to see my personality,” Sauner said. “If the kids get a good laugh in the middle of the day, then I’m all for it. But it also gives them the chance to challenge themselves with a bit of competition.”
Wednesday marked the 30th anniversary of Pi Day (3/14), and to celebrate the infinitely repeating numeral, AIS transformed into Mathopolis.
The floors were divided into different math-themed municipalities, such as Array Ville, Angle City and Fraction Land.
