No trivia or quizzes yet. However, my son's 2nd grade teacher read it to her class and they didn't quite get it. I feel that ideally a teacher cumferencr then have an easier time expanding on the lesson because the students would already be familiar with both concept of pi and the vocabulary that surrounds it. There are many other facts about pi that could have been introduced.

I actually understand Pi now better than I ever did. Where was this when I was in school, getting great grades in math without every truly understanding what I was doing? Update: My son has been learning about Pi and the formula for finding the circumference of a circle for a few weeks. He failed the whole unit, and I'm glad I remembered this book. We read it together, and he was motivated to experiment with string and measuring tape on various circular objects around the house. He has this formula truly understood now instead of memorized, and on several enrichment practice exercises he performed perfectly.
