I like the idea of using visuals. I teach secondary math, so many of the ideas are extremely abstract for students, and traditionally are taught that way. The task asking how many small squares are needed to go around the circle is awesome and makes pi more accessible.
As I think about it more, I guess these are tied together; manipulatives such as algebra tiles provide visual representations of abstract concepts, and the student-generated responses develop student understanding.
