Lesson Plan – Lesosn 5 Calculating Area of Circles Mental and Oral Starter Pupils to find the circumference of each circle. Main Activity Student to trim the blue squares so that they can fit them inside the circle. They must put the bits they cut off inside the circle as well. They will discover that they can fit 3 blue squares inside the circle with a little bit of space left over. Alternatively this can be shown to pupils using the white board without the pupils actually cutting up the squares. Explain that the radius squared will fit inside the circle a little bit more than three times. Ask them what this reminds them of. They should realise that this the radius squared fits inside the circle Pi times. Explain the formula to pupils. Pupils to work in groups to match each circle to the correct area. Plenary Pupils to use mini white boards to answer the probing questions Objectives To calculate the area of a circle from the diameter and the radius.. Keywords Circumference, Radius, Diameter, Pi
15-Jan-15 RAG Radius, Diameter, Circumference, Pi LO Finding the Area of a Circle Learning Outcomes Level 5 To roughly estimate the area of a circle. Level 6 To calculate the area of a circle using Pi
Level34567 /8 Shape Space Measure I can accurately measure using a tape measure. I can roughly estimate the area of a circle. I can more accurately estimate the area of a circle. I can calculate the radius, diameter or area of circles and semi circles when given one other measurement. I can calculate volumes and surface area of cylinders. Today we are learning I am starting the lesson on level _____________________ By the end of this lesson I want to be able to _____________________
22-Sep-09 RAG Radius, Diameter, Circumference, Pi LO Finding the Area of a Circle Starter Activity Find the Circumference of these circles Radius = 7cm Diameter = 6cm Radius = 2cm
There is a relationship between the radius of a circle and its area.
Look at the radius squared. How many of the radius squared will fit inside the circle?
Use the large blue squares provided. How many can you fit inside the circle? You will have to cut off the edges to fit them inside, the bits you cut off must be put inside the circle too.
Two of these squares will fit easily. Will 3 squares fit?
Three of these squares will fit easily. With a little bit left over. So the Area of the Circle is just over 3 times bigger than the area of the radius squared. What does this remind you of?
Formula for the area of a circle So we can find the area of a circle using the formula. radius Area of a circle = πr 2 Area of a circle = r 2 x Pi Or radius x radius x Pi
Today’s Task In your groups match each circle to the correct area.
Area = 78.55cm 2 Area = cm 2 Area = ??????????? Area = cm 2 Area = cm 2 Area = cm 2 Area = cm 2 Area = cm 2 Area = cm 2
The area of a circle Use π = 3.14 to find the area of the following circles: A = πr 2 2 cm = 3.14 × 2 2 = cm 2 A = πr 2 10 m = 3.14 × 5 2 = 78.5 m 2 A = πr 2 23 mm = 3.14 × 23 2 = mm 2 A = πr 2 78 cm = 3.14 × 39 2 = cm 2
What is the minimum information you need to be able to find the circumference and area of a circle? How would you go about finding the area of a circle if you know the circumference? Probing Questions – Mini White Boards at the Ready
Success Criteria Level 5 I am working at level 5, I can estimate the area of a circle. Level 6 I am working at level 6, I can calculate the area of a circle using Pi.
