|In this classroom activity, a PCMI Resource for Teachers, students investigate whether paper cups roll out the pattern of an annulus and how you can tell, how the dimensions of the cup relate to the dimensions of the annulus, and whether you can predict the annulus' dimensions from those of the cup. The lesson uses compass and paper activities as well as Geometer's Sketchpad. Student worksheets available in PDF format as well as web pages.|
