Celebrate Pi Day and give students the practice they need at evaluating polynomials and coordinate graphing with this Math-Then-Graph Activity.
Students are given a number of coordinate points to graph. Some of the points are written in function notation (i.e. f(-3) = _____ ). Students use a polynomial bank to evaluate the specific functions and reveal the corresponding coordinate point. Then the students plot and connect the points only within the designated zones. When they are done, they will have a picture of the symbol "Pi."
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
