Finding the value of pi

Project: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/128253091/

Ideas: 

  1. Think about discuss why you think the mean value of π never seems to get close to the expected value of 3.141593.
  2. Remix to generate the value of π with greater accuracy.
  3. Remix to use another method of calculating the diameter.
  4. Write a new program to draw circles of various diameters, radii, and circumferences without using the turn motion block

Example Curriculum: Ontario Grade 8 mathematics, NSN, GSS, M strands
