 Calculate Pi by Throwing Frozen Hot Dogs Math has never been more fun! This site features the steps for a Monte Carlo Simulation that uses random numbers to solve a problem. Students throw frozen hot dogs and measure the number of times they cross lines that have been placed down beforehand. Once students are finished throwing the hot dogs, they then multiply the number of tosses by two divided by the number of crosses on the lines and they will have an approximation of pi! The site contains specific details for conducting this experiment.
