I am so disappointed that circles are no longer part of our Common Core State Standards for 6th grade. I used to love teaching circumference and diameter. We had to do sector of circle which was SOOO difficult for my Smarties, but friends, it was FUN! I incorporated March Madness and we found shot percentages for our favorite teams that made the tournament. On Pi day we memorized digits, made Pi day t-shirts, and practiced measuring a variety of circles. It was such a great week of activities. Now, with our state assessment coming up in a few weeks, I don't have time to take a week for these activities. THAT is so frustrating! We were incorporating real world math!
ANyhoo.. off my soap box! I'm still celebrating with a little Basketball Madness as my Cuse start the ACC tournament, and of course, I'm going to have PIE with my dinner tonight.
