Piece of Pi


My 8th graders love these Bonus Beasts! This challenge problem is one of many I'll use at the end of a busy week. My students compete to see which class period gets the most correct responses. It's evolved into a weekly game!

This would also be great for quick enrichment/review for middle school & Algebra students.

Product Contents:
1. Cover sheet with description of the common core math standard
