Celebrate Pi Day with this Math-Then-Graph Activity.
Students are given a number of coordinate points to graph. Most of the points contain an expression to evaluate. Each expression is comprised of +, -, x ,or / and 2 digits of Pi that the students need to identify by their position in the number Pi. Then the students plot and connect the points. When they are done, they will have a picture of the symbol "Pi."
Example: Pi = 3.1415926535 8979323846 2643383279 5028841971 6939937510
5820974944 5923078164 0628620899 8628034825 3421170679 …
(-6, 36th + 39th) find the digits --> (-6, 4 + 7) graph the point --> (-6, 11)
Don't forget to download a copy of my custom-made FREE GRAPH PAPER
Here are some tips:
 All points will be on one grid line or another.
 A completed picture has been provided to be used as a key.
 You can download my custom made FREE GRAPH PAPER
from my store.
 I have also found that printing graph paper directly from themathworksheetsite.com
helps out, but any graph paper will do.
 Remember to copy double-sided when necessary to save paper
