Educational Programming Series release date: 2001

Program Description

In this session, we will explore the common measures that involve circles -- circumference and area -- and work on activities that help us understand the formulas for these measures. We will also revisit accuracy, precision, and scale in relation to circles. Finally, we will explore how properties of the irrational number pi () affect calculations of circumference and area.
