Pi is amazing. Fact. And if you ask me, students should be given the opportunity to discover one of the most amazing numbers in the world themselves. This set of resources contains an activity that does exactly that, involving string and a really nicely designed worksheet. But the fun is only just beginning…

Because on top of that you have four challenging “workstations” that students move around in small groups and take on. There is a nicely differentiated worksheet, a playing cards activity, a grid game, and then my favourite of all, a circumference discussion. Enjoyable, challenging, and guaranteed to deepen your students’ understanding of the beauty of pi.

Thank you for sharing!
