Product Description

This activity is modified from a few resources to stream-line and make it easier for students to work through the activity. Student will physically cut up circles and form them into a parallelogram, eventually coming to the realization that we can turn the circle into a rectangle and find the area. They then see how they can build the formula using their knowledge of area of a rectangle.
