Circles: Area and Circumference

1. Circles: Area and Circumference

Like all geometric shapes, circles take up space and a formula is required to calculate the area. Learn about the area and circumference of circles, explore the formula to calculate a circle's area, and review examples that use the diameter and others that use the circumference to find the area of a circle.

Inscribed and Circumscribed Figures: Definition & Construction

2. Inscribed and Circumscribed Figures: Definition & Construction

Inscribed figures are shapes drawn in other shapes while circumscribed figures are shapes drawn outside other shapes. Study the definition and construction of inscribed polygons and circles and circumscribed figures, and find practice problems.

How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

3. How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

An inscribed angle occurs when two lines, or chords, share an endpoint. Explore this idea in depth, unpacking how to use central angles and arc lengths to determine the measure of the inscribed angles.

Tangent of a Circle: Definition & Theorems

4. Tangent of a Circle: Definition & Theorems

The tangent of a circle is a line that touches the circle in only one place, making it unable to enter the circle. Learn about different theorems of tangent circles through geometric examples.

Arc Length of a Sector: Definition and Area

5. Arc Length of a Sector: Definition and Area

Sectors are a part of a circle which meets in the center and has an arch connecting the two straight lengths, or radii: they are shaped much like slices of pizza. Learn how to calculate the arc length of a sector and the formula behind determining the given area.

Measurements of Angles Involving Tangents, Chords & Secants

6. Measurements of Angles Involving Tangents, Chords & Secants

An angle refers to the space that is created when two lines intersect or meet. Learn how to calculate measurements about angles that are created by tangents, chords, and secants in a circle, including two chords, tangent and chord, two tangent lines, tangent and secant, and two secant lines.

Measurements of Lengths Involving Tangents, Chords and Secants

7. Measurements of Lengths Involving Tangents, Chords and Secants

A circle has measurements of lengths that intersect at different points on the curve. Learn about intersecting chords, secants, and tangents and their relationship to each other on the circle.

Regular Polygons: Definition & Parts

8. Regular Polygons: Definition & Parts

Polygons are two dimensional shapes with straight sides, and regular polygons are those with all equal sides and angles. Learn the differences between regular and irregular polygons and the various parts that are used to create them.

How to Find the Equation of a Circle

9. How to Find the Equation of a Circle

In mathematics, circles have two forms of equations. Learn how to find the equation of a circle. Recognize that circle equations have a standard form, as well as a general form, and explore several examples to gain an understanding of each form.

Radian Measure: Definition & Formula

10. Radian Measure: Definition & Formula

In mathematics, the radian is the standard unit of angular measure. This lesson will define radian and work through some problems involving radians. The lesson will end with a quiz.

Radians and Degrees: Definition & Examples

11. Radians and Degrees: Definition & Examples

Radians and degrees are used to measure and describe angles. Learn the distinction between the two by looking at their definitions and examples as well as the importance of these two in mathematical problems.

Reflex Angle: Definition & Examples

12. Reflex Angle: Definition & Examples

A reflex angle is any angle measured between 180º and 360º added to an acute or obtuse angle to complete a full 360º circle. See example problems and solutions demonstrating the use of reflex angles, as well as how to measure them.

Segment Bisector: Definition & Example

13. Segment Bisector: Definition & Example

A segment bisector passes through a midpoint and cuts a line segment into two equal parts. Learn the definition of segment bisectors, discover facts that should be considered when working with segment bisectors, and look at some examples.

Perimeter of a Sector of a Circle

14. Perimeter of a Sector of a Circle

The perimeter is a measure of the distance along the edge of an object, which can be calculated even for partial slices of a circle, known as sectors. Learn how the radius and arc length are both used to calculate the perimeter, demonstrated in an example.
