Activities
 R2D2 Postits 3 Act Task from Jon Orr  Post it notes are placed on a bulletin board in the shape of R2D2. Ask students to estimate and then calculate the surface area of the bulletin board to find the total number of postit notes used.
 Coin Carpet 3 Act Task from Dan Meyer  If you were going to carpet the room with a single kind of Canadian coin, which would be the cheapest option? If you could use any coin currently in circulation in the world, what would you use? Some extra questions: Design a pattern using 2 or 3 different coins to carpet the floor in the classroom and determine the cost. Would coins make a good floor material?

 File Cabinet from Andrew Stadel  How many postit notes will it take to completely cover Mr. Stadel's fil cabinet?
 Going Round in Circles from Andrew Stadel  Compare the heigth of a water bottle to its circumference. Most students will say the circumference is shorter than the height of the water bottle.
