Pi
on the Web Field Trip
By Shelley Walsh
Introduction:
Hi, my name is Shelley Walsh and I teach for the University
of Maryland, European Division. I teach adult education mathematics
courses at US command RAF bases in the United Kingdom. I sometimes
teach beginning students about pi and how to find the circumference
and area of a circle. Pi is a very important number in mathematics
and has a very interesting history. It is much talked about,
particularly on the web, so I developed this tour so that
my students and other students could take better advantage
of this.
