Pre-Algebra and Algebra Questions for Pi Day
Pre-Algebra uses 3.14 for Pi (∏)
Algebra asks for exact answers in terms of Pi (∏)
This activity was created for the students to use for Pi Day or for learning about radius, diameter, circumference and area of a circle.
Students will use their knowledge of Pi to answer questions relating to the area and circumference of a circle.
This activity can be a class project or something to be worked on independently when time allows.
Included in this download:
* Questions to be answered.
* Answer Key for both Pre-Algebra and Algebra
* Answer Key with the answers worked out for both Pre-Algebra and Algebra
