Beads & Math (It's Mardi Gras In The Classroom)

Bring in a few sets of beads and distribute them to each student. The goal is to estimate the number of beads without actually counting them.

Hmm...geometric formulas may do nice here.  What shape and what formula would give us the best estimate of the number of beads?
