Celebrate Pi Day at Home! Tomorrow is Pi Day!

Every year on March 14th, math lovers around the world celebrate Pi Day. The mathematical constant pi is most commonly known for its use in calculating the radius, diameter or circumference of a circle.

Celebrations like Pi Day help keep math fun for kids of all ages.

In fact, the goal of the Kumon Math Program is to help children develop a true love for math by making the study of high school math easy. It instills in students the mindset and skills for self-learning and allows them to advance independently, ultimately resulting in many students studying above grade level.
