Pi Day Activity - Thoughts?

Hey all! As the stores are gearing up for the holidays, I’m getting an early start on every math teacher’s favorite holiday :wink: This activity is a Desmos remake of several activities I’ve seen and/or used for approximating the area of a circle and pi.

  • What are your overall thoughts? Are the activities set up well to help students understand “where pi comes from” and how we can find the area of a circle without relying a mysterious formula?
  • Do you know other demonstrations or activities that might fit in well with this lesson?

Thanks in advance for any and all feedback!
