Properties of circles
This topic within Maths is something completely new to you and it is quite tricky so we are going to do some work on it over the next couple of days. Do your best with it and if you are really stuck, use the extra resources or email your class teacher!
Below is a circle with the different parts labelled:
The first thing I would like you to do is to draw a circle on a blank page of paper. You can do this by drawing around something circular in your house or using a piece of string and a pencil.
Next, draw a number of different sizes of circles (they don’t have to be perfect) and label each of them with circumference, radius and diameter.
If I tell you that the diameter is double the radius, can you work out the following diameters? The first one has been done for you.
Well done, we will do some more work on this tomorrow!
