I found out that R x R x Pi = Area of a circle because whenever there is a circle, there must be pi. Also, we had to see if the formula was right. so we had to count the squares and the left-overs. When I did it, the formula was right!

]]>Students realised that by squaring the circle’s radius, the resulting square ‘fits’ in the circle less than 4 times. Which number that we have been working with is somewhere less than 4 times? Well Pi of course or 3.14. From here students deduced that the formula for working out the area of the circle itself is the raduis x radius x pi…or pi.r(squared). In deriving the formula themselves students understand the area of a circle much deeper and can now try an estimating strategy to see if they get around the same answer!
