Come test your intuition with a mathematical problem about a rope tied around the Earth. Explore the counterintuitive solution with an engaging, hands-on activity. How can we use C=2*pi*r to understand this intriguing problem? Learn how simple models can help us better understand concepts that defy logic.
Materials needed: pencil, paper, ruler with inch measurements, tape, 3 paper clips, scissors, and sheet of 8-½ x 11 paper cut lengthwise into ½-inch strips.
