Not gonna lie, I had never seen this is real life and truly STRUGGLED to explain what pi is. This is AMAZING! I see now how much more seeing this concept visually would have benefitted me when I learned was pi is. I know that I’ll be using visuals in my class as I teach solving equations with algebra tiles, as I teach the relationship between a cylinder and cone, etc. I wonder if there is ALWAYS a visual way to show the concepts I teach, if I’ll just think a bit harder? I never would have known how to show pi having not seen this, so I’m wondering how many other visual things I’m missing out on in my own learning.
