5 The Perimeter Of A Circle. Look at the circle below:Circumference.What do we call the distance around the circle?What do we call the distance across the circle ?DiameterKey Question.How many times bigger is the diameter of the circle compared to the diameter ?The circumference is a bit more than three times the diameter.
6 Estimating The Circumference. If we know that the circumference of a circle is roughly three times the diameter , then estimate the circumference of the circles below:(2)9m(1)6cmCircumference = 3 x diameterC = 3 x6cmCircumference = 3 x diameterC = 3 x9mC = 18 cmC = 27m
7 The Number Called Pi.After a great deal of measuring and calculating , Greek mathematicians came up with a better estimate of how many times bigger the circumference was compared to the diameter.Key Fact.They found that the circumference was 3.14 times bigger than the diameter. They called 3.14 Pi after a letter in the Greek alphabet. The letter pi is written as :The Circumference Of A Circle.Circumference = Pi x Diameter
8 Calculating The Circumference. Calculate the circumference of the circles below:(2)2.8cm(1)10mC = x DC = x D= 3.14D = 10m= 3.14D = 2.8cmC = 3.14 x 10C = 3.14 x 2.8C = 31.4mC = 8.8cm
