# Welcome To Treasure (P)island!

8 Steps
We're not sure how this crazy idea started, or who even thought of it for that matter! All we know is that we have never seen a bunch of teenagers get as excited as THIS, over something math related. And hey - that's all that matters right?!

This instructable will guide you through an awesome 24-hours of pi-related madness, at our tutoring centre, The Math Guru. After dodging some crazy unforseen potential disasters - a melting mixing bowl, cornstarch-covered floors, and a pi(e) too big to FIT IN THE OVEN (what silly math teachers/students we are!) - we finally did it! Welcome to (drum roll please)...

TREASURE (P)ISLAND!

(Shhh...Our secret plan? Win a (p)ipad to load with math apps so that all our darling students *have* to play mathy games in between tutoring sessions! GENIUS, right?!)

## Step 1: And so it begins...

It all started with a vision...math teachers *try* to be organized, right? We somehow came up with the idea of creating "Treasure (P)island," an island-themed-pi-shaped-pie. I mean, it was just too easy to come up with a multutude of ridiculous geeky math-island-related puns:

(A)RRRRRRRRRRRRR-(squared), PI-rate ship...come on!

So, we created this map as our lesson plan, aka Treasure (P)island map!

I did do a submission, thanks for asking/looking! http://www.instructables.com/id/Thoroughly-Pie/

I manipulated the pie ingredients so they'd go through the first 11 digits of pi, as well as ensuring there were 3 ingredients in the top layer, 1 ingredient in the middle, and 4 ingredients in the bottom.
