Circles: Area and Circumference

1. Circles: Area and Circumference

Understanding how to calculate the area and circumference of circles plays a vital role in some of our everyday functions. They serve as the foundation for operating with three-dimensional figures. Learn more about the area and circumference of circles in this lesson.

Circular Arcs and Circles: Definitions and Examples

2. 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.

Central and Inscribed Angles: Definitions and Examples

3. 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.

Measure of an Arc: Process & Practice

4. 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.

How to Find the Measure of an Inscribed Angle

5. 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.

Tangent of a Circle: Definition & Theorems

6. 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.

Measurements of Angles Involving Tangents, Chords & Secants

7. Measurements of Angles Involving Tangents, Chords & Secants

When lines and circles meet, angles are formed. Fortunately, we can determine the measure of these angles, whether they're formed by tangents, secants or chords, just by knowing the measure of the created arcs.

Measurements of Lengths Involving Tangents, Chords and Secants

8. Measurements of Lengths Involving Tangents, Chords and Secants

The lengths of chords, tangents and secants take on unique relationships when they're drawn on circles. In this lesson, we'll define those relationships and see them in action.

Inscribed and Circumscribed Figures: Definition & Construction

9. Inscribed and Circumscribed Figures: Definition & Construction

A square and a circle may be different shapes, but they still can have a unique relationship. In this lesson, we'll learn about inscribed and circumscribed figures.

Arc Length of a Sector: Definition and Area

10. Arc Length of a Sector: Definition and Area

In this lesson, we'll slice up a circle like it's a pizza and learn how to find out useful information about our slices. We'll find out the area of these sectors, or pie slices. We'll also learn about arc lengths.

Chord of a Circle: Definition & Formula

11. Chord of a Circle: Definition & Formula

In this lesson, you'll learn the definition of a chord of a circle. You will also learn the formulas to find the chord of a circle and then look at some examples.

Circle Graph: Definition & Examples

12. Circle Graph: Definition & Examples

A circle graph is a circular chart divided into sections that each represent a percentage of the total. This lesson will define a circle graph and give some examples of types of circle graphs.

Circular Functions: Equations & Examples

13. Circular Functions: Equations & Examples

In this lesson, we will learn how to define the basic trigonometric functions using a circle. In doing so, every angle in a circle will be paired with an ordered (x,y) point in the coordinate plane using the basic trigonometric functions.

Finding the Area of a Sector: Formula & Practice Problems

14. Finding the Area of a Sector: Formula & Practice Problems

In this lesson, you'll review your knowledge of circle vocabulary and then discover how to calculate the area of a sector of a circle. The lesson covers finding the area of the sector using degrees and radians.
