Pi = 3.14 Exploration

Pi = 3.14 Can you prove it?
All you need is a piece of string and a circle.
  • Measure out the circumference with the string.
  • Use this string to measure the diameter…..You will be able to measure the diameter 3 times and have .14 of the diameter left over in string.
  • Try it with all sizes of circles. You can measure the pies you bake!
