A maths themed playlist for Pi Day

Sometimes Rich volunteers me for bake sales or photographing the summer fair and then other times he asks me to help him with a maths themed playlist. Never a dull moment…

March 14th is generally celebrated as Pi Day, it’s more popular in the States but Rich’s school takes the opportunity to celebrate an informal ‘Maths Day’ and he came up with the idea to have a maths/numbers themed music playing during lessons. He also thought it would be a good idea to have snacks so I made sugar cookies in the shape of numbers. There was a lot of cookies but I had a new playlist to get me through.

I wasn’t going to share, however when I mentioned a maths themed playlist at work they were all for it and we’ve listened to it twice in as many days to figured why the hell not.
