Publisher: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Description: This math unit from Illuminations asks students to inscribe and circumscribe regular polygons. They will then analyze the area of the polygons, using either an applet or a graphing calculator. The unit includes two lessons, "Inscribed and Circumscribed Polygons" and "Improving Archimedes' Method." Together they should require 3 class periods to complete, and are most appropriate for high school level classes.
