Hands-on Projects...

Design a paper experiment where wave and circle cutouts have to be fitted to a certain radius. Have the students fit clones of the wave piece in a circlular manner.

Have the students understand why some lengths fit and why others don't. Begin with at least 3 or 4 waves (peaks).
