For students who think they have a BAD maths teacher, watch the first video **here.**

Tell your year 8 or 9 students this test is designed to test their ability to concentrate and use logic while doing a challenging test under pressure.

Tell students to circle the ‘correct’ answer. Then wait to see how long it takes them to think you have totally lost the plot! You can make copies of the test using the PDF links below. You can put the answers up later on the smart board.

Mathspig April Fools Math Test 1 USA

This is a cool trick to show the class. k

This maths teacher is, like, sooooo pranked.

You have to wait until No. 10. But there it is! It is official. We’re going to round pi off to 3.

Hey, it’s about time isn’t it.

The best maths class April Fools trick ever as the numbers show!

Australia and UK write their dates DD/MM/YY and the 14th March or 14.3 is nothing to get excited about.

Pi in Europe is pronounced Pee. So 14th March Would be

And Pee Day would not be something to encourage in Middle School. Also the perfume below is hilarious in Europe.

…………………………………………………….

Nevertheless, here are 2 interesting appearances by Pi in the movies plus a middle school challenge to count the Pi’s in the movie clip.

In this movie where Russell Crowe plays Mathematician Nobel Laureate John Nash, there is a maths blooper involving Pi. Watch for pi on the window at 43 seconds.

You should have seen 0<π<1. But we all know π = 3.1415 etc. For those mathematically fastidious an argument can be put that π can be used as a variable, which would make the statement true. But π is a universal constant so using π as a variable is just STUPID.

………………………………………………………….

This 1998 psychological thriller promo clip is also the coolest maths promo you will ever see. It is only 1.42 mins long and it is big on π. But be warned the full lenght moive (SPOILER ALERT) involves madness, π and self-lobotomising with a power drill with a ‘happy’ ending.

How many times do you see π in this clip? Watch carefully!!!!!

So you have cracked the WIFI password (above). It’s time for some Fun, Fun, Funnies.
