The circumference (perimeter) of a circle can be measured using the formula
C= π x Diameter.
Students in Mr. Lupu’s Essential Math class set out to see if this is true by manually measuring the perimeter of a variety of circular objects using a string and a ruler. Then they applied the formula and compared their manual results to formula results.
Below is Nate’s results.
Nate- “I am happy with my results. My manual measurements were close to the answers derived from the circumference formula. I probably could have measured more accurately on some, but I may have stretched the string a little during measuring. I am now convinced that Circumference does equal π x D”
