Tangent of a Circle: Definition & Theorems

1. Tangent of a Circle: Definition & Theorems

What happens when a line just barely touches a circle? It's a tangent! In this lesson, we'll learn all about tangents to circles, including a few key theorems. We'll also look at tangent circles.

Central and Inscribed Angles: Definitions and Examples

2. Central and Inscribed Angles: Definitions and Examples

When we're working with circles, there are two key angles to know: central angles and inscribed angles. These angles have a few special theorems, which we'll discuss and practice using in this lesson.

Circular Arcs and Circles: Definitions and Examples

3. Circular Arcs and Circles: Definitions and Examples

What is a circle? In this lesson, find out all about the circle and its many parts, including circular arcs and semicircles. Also, discover how a locus works in creating a circle, parallel lines and more.

How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

4. How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

Finding the measure of an inscribed angle requires knowing a little information. In this lesson, we'll find the measure of an inscribed angle when we know the measure of the central angle or one or more of the arcs formed by the angle.

Diameter and Circumference Related with Pi

5. Diameter and Circumference Related with Pi

After watching this video, you will be able to tell others how the number pi is related to a circle's diameter and circumference. And using your newfound knowledge, you will be able to calculate the circumference or diameter of a circle.

Measure of an Arc: Process & Practice

6. Measure of an Arc: Process & Practice

What is the measure of an arc? And what is the difference between a minor arc and a major arc? Find out all that and practice finding the measure of an arc in this lesson.
