Pi Proof

Pi Proof

from 19.95

This model physically demonstrates the meaning of the mathematical symbol “pi”, the ratio of the diameter of a circle to its circumference (distance around the outside). A disk rolls along a marked scale, showing how it makes one complete revolution just past 3 times its diameter, specifically at 3.141592… times its diameter.

Tiny gear teeth ensure that the disk can never slip out of alignment with the scale markings.
