In this math learning exercise, students study 4 pie shaped circles and figure out how many pieces of pie will result if they cut the pie a specified number of times. Students make a math table showing the number of cuts they made and the resulting number of pie pieces. Students discover a pattern and figure out the formula.

As a middle school teacher and coach, I have very little spare time. This year, I was asked to teach 2 subjects (one of which I have never taught). Lesson Planet has helped me become more prepared without having to spend hours on the internet searching for ideas. Almost everything I need can now be found with one click of the mouse!
