Exploring Circumference

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Geometry

Big Idea:What is pi, anyway? Students explore the relationship between circumference and diameter by measuring a variety of circles and use it to derive the formula for circumference.

Area vs. Circumference

6th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Geometry

Big Idea:Make an estimate for the area of each circle. How can we calculate a more exact area? Students develop an estimate for a circleâs area and learn the formula. Then students must apply their knowledge to determine whether they calculate area or circumferen
