Introduction to Accumulation

In this area of an ellipse worksheet, students are directed to work in groups of four to estimate the area of an ellipse by following four steps: They over and underestimate the area by using a large grid, then under and over estimate the area using a smaller grid. Students then estimate the arc length of an ellipse by over and underestimating first to the nearest inch and then to the nearest quarter inch.

The new resource preview feature is awesome! It is extremely easy to both find materials and align them with the Common Core Standards. I use those a lot since they are not state-specific, and my lessons must meet the needs of students from different states as well as other countries. You will help me save a lot of planning time!
