Students learn how to manipulate the various formulae associated to the area of a sector and arc length to find the radius and angle theta. As learning progresses they are challenged to solve more complex problems both with and without a calculator.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to manipulate the formula for the arc length of a sector.
- Most students should be able to manipulate the formula for the arc length and area of sectors.
- Some students should be able to derive known facts for problems involving sectors through manipulating the formulae.
