A circle is a two-dimensional shape that is defined as the set of all points in a plane that are at a given distance from a fixed point, called the center. The distance from the center to any point on the circle is called the radius of the circle. The distance across the circle passing through the center is called the diameter.

**Radius:**The distance from the center of the circle to any point on the circle.**Diameter:**The distance across the circle passing through the center, which is twice the length of the radius.**Circumference:**The distance around the circle, which is given by the formula: C = 2πr, where r is the radius of the circle.**Area:**The space enclosed by the circle, which is given by the formula: A = πr^{2}, where r is the radius of the circle.

**Circumference:** C = 2πr

**Area:** A = πr^{2}

1. Find the circumference of a circle with a radius of 5 cm.

**Solution:** C = 2π(5) = 10π cm

2. Find the area of a circle with a radius of 3.5 m.

**Solution:** A = π(3.5)^{2} = 12.25π m^{2}

1. Understand the definition of a circle and its key components (center, radius, diameter).

2. Learn the formulas for calculating the circumference and area of a circle.

3. Practice solving problems involving circles, including finding the circumference, area, radius, or diameter.

Geometry and Measurement: Analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures by using distance and angle

Students use fundamental facts about distance and angles to describe and analyze figures and situations in two- and three-dimensional space and to solve problems, including those with multiple steps. They prove that particular configurations of lines give rise to similar triangles because of the congruent angles created when a transversal cuts parallel lines. Students apply this reasoning about similar triangles to solve a variety of problems, including those that ask them to find heights and distances. They use facts about the angles that are created when a transversal cuts parallel lines to explain why the sum of the measures of the angles in a triangle is 180 degrees, and they apply this fact about triangles to find unknown measures of angles. Students explain why the Pythagorean Theorem is valid by using a variety of methods - for example, by decomposing a square in two different ways. They apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find distances between points in the Cartesian coordinate plane to measure lengths and analyze polygons and polyhedra.
