**How to calculate the area of a circle.**

It’s as easy as pi.

2
**Let’s first make sure that we understand the difference between circumference and area.**

3
**The circumference of a circle is the perimeter of the circle.**

4
**Imagine that the circle is straightening itself out.**

8
**The length of this line segment is the circumference of the circle.**

314 cm

9
**The circumference is the same length as 3 diameters plus**

The circumference is the same length as 3 diameters plus .14 of another diameter.

10
**So, circumference = diameter x 3.14**

15
**Does this look familiar?**

16
**O.K., now it’s time to move forward with some new stuff.**

17
**How in the world would you find the area of a circle?**

18
**Remember, area is always measured in square units.**

19
Remember that the area of a rectangle is length x width because you’re calculating the total number of squares inside of the rectangle. 2 4

20
**That’s fine and dandy, but a circle is not a polygon**

That’s fine and dandy, but a circle is not a polygon. It does not have straight sides; it has curves.

21
**How are we going to get around these curves?**

22
**Imagine chopping up the circle as if it were a pizza.**

23
**Now, let’s rearrange our “pizza” into another shape.**

31
PRESTO!

32
**Great Mr. Dunlap! But what in the world is this?**

33
**Believe it or not, this is really our “friend” the parallelogram**

Believe it or not, this is really our “friend” the parallelogram. And, we know how to calculate the area of a parallelogram.

34
**Rats! He always has an answer for everything.**

35
Area = Base x Height Height Base

36
To find the area of the circle (which is now a parallelogram), we just need to multiply the Base by the Height. Height Base

37
**Wait a minute! The height of this “parallelogram” is really the radius of the circle.**

Base

38
**Wait a minute! The Base is really 1/2 of the circumference.**

Radius 1/2 of Circumference

39
**Wait a minute! The circumference is really Diameter x **

Radius 1/2 of Diameter x

40
**Wait a minute! 1/2 of a Diameter is really a Radius.**

Radius x

41
**So if we multiply the Base x Height**

42
**We are really multiplying Radius x Radius x **

43
Practice Time!

44
**1) Now let’s try this formula. Find the area of this circle.**

5 cm

45
5 x 5 x 3.14 = 78.5 square cm 5 cm

46
**2) Find the area of this circle.**

6 cm

47
6 x 6 x 3.14 = square cm 6 cm

48
**3) Find the area of this circle.**

9 cm

49
9 x 9 x 3.14 = square cm 9 cm

50
**4) Find the area of this circle.**

20 cm

51
**Make sure that you use the radius of the circle.**

10 x 10 x 3.14 = 314 cm2 Make sure that you use the radius of the circle. 20 cm

52
**5) Find the area of this circle.**

14 cm

53
**Make sure that you use the radius of the circle.**

7 x 7 x 3.14 = cm2 Make sure that you use the radius of the circle. 14 cm

54
**6) Find the area of this circle.**

22 cm

55
11 x 11 x 3.14 = cm2 22 cm

56
**Area = Radius x Radius x **

It’s as easy as pi.
