How Close to Pi Can You Get?

Unit 10: Circles
Lesson 8 of 10

Objective: SWBAT evaluate the accuracy of their approximations of pi using different values of n and to work backwards to determine which value of n will yield an approximation that is accurate to a particular place value.

Big Idea: Now that students have estimates and a generalized approach, let them get the most accurate approximations possible! Students use technology to understand the full power of the tools they have developed.
