Who in the world discovered pi? Help your students understand that people from all over the world have worked for thousands of years to understand this elusive number.
This is a great activity for Pi Day (March 14th) or any day! Each student receives one display card listing a date, contributor, location, and contribution, as well as a map. The student colors or marks the location then displays the card on an eleven-foot long timeline.
