Let the 7th Grade Math students have a blast experiencing a full BLACK FRIDAY excursion. Students will shop, and compare better buys using their understanding of calculating sales tax, and discount, to solve a performance task.
Calculating Pi with Darts Pi can be calculated using a random sample of darts thrown at a square and circle target. The problem with this method lies in attempting to throw "randomly." We explored different ways to overcome our errors.
