Buffon’s Needle simulation to generate Pi

Simulation, Stimulus

A high quality Flash Animation to demonstrate Buffon’s Needle Theorem. Fire it up on your IWB and leave it running for a good while to get closer and closer to the value of Pi.
A great resource to use when introducing students to the surprising mathematics involving Pi.
