              Circumference of Circles

              Students are taken through the process of discovering the relationship between the radius, diameter and circumference of a circle.  By drawing three different sized circles, measuring their radii, diameter and circumferences students tabulate their results and look for patterns.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to derive and use the formulae for the circumference of a circle in terms of its diameter.
              • Most students should be able to derive and use the formulae for the circumference of a circle in terms of its radius.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the radius and diameter of a circle when given its circumference.
