I displayed the number of Pi on the board and with my year 8 students I did the following:
1.) I timed them for 30 seconds and see how far they got saying the numbers in German - competition amongst them and a few students managed to say the whole displayed number in German within the 30 seconds.
2.) Come up with the highest numer in German they can see in the long pi number which was great as some of them came up with words and translated them such as:
- in the power of = zu der Kraft von
- infinity = unendlich
