# Solving For Circumference

## Worksheet Description

This Pi Day worksheet is an appetizing way to practice math, using pizzas to help students understand and calculate the circumference of a circle. The worksheet is titled “Solving for Circumference” and provides the formula for calculating the circumference of a circle (C = 2πr), ensuring that the necessary equation is readily available for reference. Four different pizza illustrations, each with a specified diameter, allow students to visualize the problem and apply the formula in a context that is both familiar and engaging.

For each pizza illustration—ranging from whole pizzas to a single slice—students are given the diameter and tasked with calculating the circumference. This not only reinforces the concept of π in relation to the diameter and radius but also gives students practical application skills by having them complete the calculations themselves. The pizzas come in a variety of sizes, which requires students to work with different numbers, thereby enhancing their arithmetic skills. Such a worksheet is perfect for a classroom activity on Pi Day, combining the fun of pizza with the fundamentals of geometry to create a memorable learning experience.
