  • Ask every learner to find a different circular object in the room (top of a glass, bottom of glass, cups, white board marker, etc) and measure the distance around it (circumference).
  • Measure the distance across it, going through the centre point (diameter).
  • Record all of the measurements in a table



  • Ask the learners to explore the relationship between circumference and diameter: the circumference is about 3 times bigger than the diameter no matter what size the circle is.
  • How could we work out the circumference if we only measure the diameter?
    • C 3 x D
    • We’ve derived a formula for circumference

Setting enables you to perform dynamic examination, in which the outcomes of a condition can change to reflect the present section or cell decision and besides any related data. Understanding setting and using setting effectively are basic for building high-performing formulas, dynamic examinations, and for exploring issues in conditions. https://www.ezassignmenthelp.co.uk/buy-college-assignment
