Mathalicious: Pizza Pi

Should you ever order a personal-sized pizza from Pizza Hut?

Pizza Hut pizzas come in large, medium, and personal. While the smallest size is the least expensive, it costs the most per square inch and is over half crust!

In this lesson, students calculate circle areas to compare the unit costs of different sized pizzas, find the percent of pizza that is tasty inside vs. crust, and debate whether it’s ever a good idea to order a personal-sized pizza from Pizza Hut.
