Why are decimal places important? Can't we just round up? Through a comprehensive five-day instructional activity, young mathematicians and scientists discover the answers to these questions and more through an in-depth investigation into pi. From measuring and calculating, to designing and performing an experiment, to writing a persuasive essay about whether or not pi should be rounded to 3.0, all angles are explored in a cross-curricular fashion. Although the instructional activity lasts a week, the amount of information your learners will retain is well worth the time invested.
