FINDING THE RATIO OF CIRCUMFERENCE TO DIAMETER In this project, students will use flexible tape measures to approximate the circumference and diameter of 10 different circular objects. They will record the distance around the circular object and the distance across the circular object (through the center point) in centimeters on the given table. Once all distances are recorded, the student will use a calculator to divide the circumference by the diameter and then record their answer on the table in the appropriate box. This answer should be approximated to 2 decimal places. CIRCUMFERENCE DIAMETER = PI What is Pi? Students will soon find out!
