              Area of Circles Problems

              The lesson is intended to consolidate applying the area of circle formula to solve complex problems.  To extend on this in the main part of the lesson semi and quarter circles are considered along with compound circular shapes. 
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the area of a circle and semi-circle.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the area of compound shapes involving circles.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the radius or diameter when given the area of a circle.

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
