Pi Day Resources
http://mathforum.org/t2t/faq/faq.pi.html
This year, March 14 falls on a Sunday, so many teachers will honor
Pi Day on Friday or Monday instead. If you are looking for
some ways to celebrate math in your math class, or if you
would like to suggest some schoolwide thematic activities,
you are certain to find ideas on this page to help you design
a Pi Day that students will enjoy.
If honoring pi is not enough of a reason to make this day
special, keep in mind that March 14 is also Albert Einstein's

Erich Friedman lists the integers from zero to 9,999,
annotating each with one significant mathematical property and
colorcoordinating by that property's category.
