    I am using concrete manipulatives this week to celebrate Pi Day. My students are “discovering” Pi using string and objects (like Jon did in the video), modelling the area of a circle using paper plates and forming into a “rectangle” and exploring surface area using mandarin orange peels. There have been lots of A-ha moments. Next week I hope to use pattern blocks to help my students understand the unit circle because they always have trouble with half the circle being one pi so I hope to use an activity similar to the one shown with pattern blocks.
