Investigating Pot Sherds

Sixth graders measure pot sherds and use their knowledge of Pi to infer possible uses of pottery. They also infer possible functions of ancient ceramics. After tracing rounded pottery pieces onto paper, 6th graders use compasses to determine the rest of the circle. They discuss methods to improve their measurement accuracy.
