Teaching Circumference, Diameter, and Radius
The resources in this playlist will help students gain a more rigorous understanding of the characteristics of a circle, including the relationships between a circle’s circumference, diameter, and radius. They’ll also learn how to use pi(π) when dealing with circle calculations.
Help students discover the relationship between diameter and circumference with this interactive. Provides great support for visual learners who need to envision the relationship between a circle’s circumference and diameter in a different way. Set the diameter, unravel the circle and then drag the diameter onto the unraveled circumference. Flash Player required.
