This class will cover: Day 1: Circles Vocabulary: -definitions of line, ray, segment, circle, chord, diameter, radius, tangent, point of tangency, secant, semicircle, central angle, arcs (major and minor arcs) -how these terms relate to each other -how to identify them Day 2: Tangent Theorems: -definitions of a tangent segment, externally tangent circles, internally tangent circles, and common tangent -Perpendicular Tangent Theorem and its converse -tangent segments from a common external...
Students will be able to identify parts of a circle and how they relate to each other. They will learn the different theorems about tangents and chords and be able to use those theorems to solve problems. Students will be learning about angles in, out, and on the circle. Given one of these angles with a circle, the students will be able to use properties to solve for a missing variable. Students will be learning about the relationship of different segments and their lengths with circles. Given different segments, students will be able to use these properties to solve for a missing variable. Students will be able to find the circumference and area of a circle and what that means in real world problems. Students will be able to use circumference and area to find a length or area of an arc/sector on the circle.
The homework that will be assigned will consist mainly of worksheets. Students may be given time during class to work on homework or to ask questions on homework from the previous lesson. Homework for each lesson should take up to 60 minutes to complete (about 2 hours total max per week).
Guided notes for each lesson will be provided as well as any homework assignments. Students are encouraged to use calculators to help them with the material (scientific calculators are ok to use as well).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The students will be given 2 assessments during this course. These will either be quizzes or tests to gauge the students understanding. Students will be encouraged to use mistakes as learning moments to improve and as tools on the way to gain mastery of the material.
3 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
