Now that you’ve learned a little about Pi, let’s have a Minecraft Challenge!! Can you build Pi in Minecraft? Of course you can!
The number for Pi is 3.14159265358979323846864338327950288419716939937510582097… and it goes on and on and on.
Build a representation of Pi in Minecraft. You can use any materials you want. I chose to use wool. In the picture you can see that the first column has 3 wool in it, the 2nd one has 1 wool, the 4th has 4 and so on.
Build #2: Here’s another idea if you’d like! Build a pixel art image of Pi. Here’s what it looks like:
To start you can print it or draw it on Graph paper to get perspective.
Now that you’ve learned about Pi and built your Pi…it’s time to have a little snack! Make a Pi!! Use your favorite recipe and create one of these:
