1 Lesson Plan – Lesosn 5 Calculating Area of Circles ObjectivesTo calculate the area of a circle from the diameter and the radius..KeywordsCircumference, Radius, Diameter, PiMental and Oral StarterPupils to find the circumference of each circle.Main ActivityStudent 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.PlenaryPupils to use mini white boards to answer the probing questions
2 RAG Radius, Diameter, Circumference, Pi Learning Outcomes Level 5 LO Finding the Area of a CircleRAGRadius, Diameter, Circumference, Pi8-Apr-17Learning OutcomesLevel 5To roughly estimate the area of a circle.Level 6To calculate the area of a circle using Pi
3 Today we are learning Level 3 4 5 6 7 /8 ShapeSpaceMeasureI 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 learningI am starting the lesson on level _____________________By the end of this lesson I want to be able to _____________________
4 Find the Circumference of these circles LO Finding the Area of a CircleRAGRadius, Diameter, Circumference, Pi22-Sep-09Starter ActivityFind the Circumference of these circlesRadius = 2cmRadius = 7cmDiameter= 6cm
5 There is a relationship between the radius of a circle and its area.
6 Look at the radius squared. How many of the radius squared will fit inside the circle?
7 Use the large blue squares provided 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.
8 Two of these squares will fit easily. Will 3 squares fit?
9 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?
10 Formula for the area of a circle So we can find the area of a circle using the formula.Area of a circle = r 2 x PiOr radius x radius x PiradiusArea of a circle = πr2
11 Today’s TaskIn your groups match each circle to the correct area.
12 Pupil hand out. Print slides 17 and 18 two to a page.
13 Area = 78.55cm2 Area = 201.088cm2 Area = ??????????? Area = 380.182cm2 Pupil hand out. Print slides 17 and 18 two to a page.
14 The area of a circleUse π = 3.14 to find the area of the following circles:2 cm10 mA = πr2A = πr2= 3.14 × 22= 3.14 × 52= cm2= 78.5 m223 mm78 cmA = πr2A = πr2Explain that rather than use the formula on the previous slide, it is usually easier to halve the diameter mentally to give the radius, before substituting it into the formula.The most common error is to forget to half the diameter to find the radius.= 3.14 × 232= 3.14 × 392= mm2= cm2
15 Mini White Boards at the Ready Probing Questions –Mini White Boards at the ReadyWhat 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?
16 Success CriteriaLevel 5I am working at level 5, I can estimate the area of a circle.Level 6I am working at level 6, I can calculate the area of a circle using Pi.
