              Area of Sectors

              Students learn how find calculate the area of sectors using both calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they calculate the area of composite shapes involving sectors.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the area of a major and minor sector.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the area of compound shapes involving sectors.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the angle or radius of a sector when given the area
