### 1. Properties of Shapes: Circles

In geometry, a circle is the round shape formed by the infinite set of points an equal distance from the center. Learn the definition of a circle, and explore its various parts and properties, including the radius, diameter, circumference, pi, and chord.

### 2. 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.

### 3. Measure of an Arc: Process & Practice

The measure of an arc can be solved by determining the degree of the angle that intercepts an arc. Learn about the process of measuring an arc, major vs. minor arcs, and real-world practice arc problems.
