This Cre8ate maths activity gives the opportunity for accurate measurement, scale drawing and calculations involving pi. If there is access to a running track, students look at how the track is marked out and distances measured accurately for runners in each of the lanes. Alternatively, if a track is not available, students can investigate: * Where could a track be placed in the school grounds? * What is the smallest area required? * How can the track lanes be marked accurately?
