Mile High 3 A (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Judy K Ackermann

Incorporate math content and students' excitement of picking pumpkins by engaging them in the classroom with metric tape measures, rulers, circular objects, and calculators to complete a data sheet to discover pi. Move to the real world of a local orchard to use those same tools and data sheet to measure pumpkins and apples in the orchard to find pi.
