A circle is a closed curve that is perfectly round. It is a set of all points in a plane that are at a given distance (radius) from a given point (center).

**Center:**The point inside the circle from which all points on the circle are equidistant.**Radius:**The distance from the center of the circle to any point on the circle.**Diameter:**The distance across a circle through its center, or twice the length of the radius.**Circumference:**The distance around the edge of the circle.

**Circumference (C):**C = 2πr or C = πd, where r is the radius and d is the diameter.**Area (A):**A = πr^{2}, where r is the radius.

- A line segment drawn from the center of a circle to a point on the circle is always a radius of the circle.
- All radii of a circle are congruent (have the same length).
- Any chord (a line segment with both endpoints on the circle) is shorter than the diameter.

Here are some key points to remember when studying circles:

- Understand the definitions of center, radius, and diameter.
- Memorize the formulas for circumference and area of a circle.
- Practice using the formulas in different scenarios.
- Learn the properties of circles and how they can be applied in problem-solving.
- Work on exercises involving circles to reinforce your understanding.

By mastering the concepts and properties of circles, you'll be well-prepared to solve problems related to circles and use them in real-world situations.

Connections to the Grade 4 Focal Points (NCTM)

Algebra: Students continue identifying, describing, and extending numeric patterns involving all operations and nonnumeric growing or repeating patterns. Through these experiences, they develop an understanding of the use of a rule to describe a sequence of numbers or objects.
