# Pie Day "Swift" Friendship Bracelet Activity

Welcome to our Pi Day extravaganza! In this engaging activity, students will dive into the world of pi by creating friendship bracelets inspired by none other than the pop sensation Taylor Swift! But how does Taylor Swift fit into the world of math, you ask? Well, let's find out!

First, gather your students and introduce them to the mysterious and infinite world of pi. Explain that pi is a mathematical constant representing the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and it's approximately equal to 3.14159... (and the digits go on and on forever without repeating!).

Now, it's time to bring Taylor Swift into the equation. Explain to the students that just like Taylor Swift's songs have a unique melody and rhythm, each digit of pi has its own special place in the sequence. To help them understand this, you can play some of Taylor Swift's catchy tunes in the background to set the mood!

Next, provide materials for making friendship bracelets, such as colorful threads, beads, and scissors. Assign each student a specific digit of pi (for example, one student might get the digit 1, another might get 4, and so on). Encourage them to use different colors and patterns to represent their assigned digits creatively.

Materials:1. string

2. beads of different colors- at least 10 colors

As they craft their bracelets, encourage students to reflect on the significance of their assigned digit in the sequence of pi. For instance, they could think about how the digit 1 represents the first step in the never-ending journey of pi, or how the digit 4 marks the beginning of the famous 3.14 sequence.

Once the bracelets are complete, gather the students together and have each one share the significance of their assigned digit. This can spark discussions about the patterns and randomness of pi's digits, as well as the beauty and complexity of mathematics itself.

By engaging students in a hands-on activity that combines creativity, music, and mathematics, they'll not only gain a deeper understanding of the digits of pi but also develop a newfound appreciation for the beauty and interconnectedness of the world around them. Who knew Taylor Swift and pi could make such sweet harmony together?
