Estimating Pi as a Length

In this pi worksheet, students evaluate the curve of a quarter of a circle. They analyze the length of the curve, and explain that if the area under the curve is equal to pi, the length of the curve above is also equal to pi. Students convert a sum written in summation notation into a Riemann sum. Students compare two strategies for computing estimates of arc length.
