Julia And Melissa Circle Reflection

  1. 1. Why does circle area formula work? Melissas Skirrow and Julia Geerkens 06/03/09
  2. 2. Problem <ul><li>“ why does the circle area formula work?” </li></ul><ul><li>The formula for a rectangle is… A = L x W </li></ul><ul><li>The formula for a circle is… A = πr 2 </li></ul>
  3. 3. Process <ul><li>Firstly we cut out our circle and pasted it into a rectangle. </li></ul><ul><li>We then found the area of the rectangle. </li></ul><ul><li>We measured the radius and circumference of our circle. </li></ul><ul><li>We measured the length and width of our rectangle, that is when we dicovered that the width and radius were the same. </li></ul><ul><li>We also discovered that the length was half the size of the circumference. </li></ul><ul><li>Using this we found a formula. </li></ul>
  4. 4. challenges <ul><li>Some challenges we faced were; </li></ul><ul><li>Using the information gathered to find the formula. </li></ul><ul><li>Another challenge was using only pi and radius. </li></ul>
  5. 5. solution <ul><li>A = L x W </li></ul><ul><li>A = C/2 x r </li></ul><ul><li>A = πD/2 x r </li></ul><ul><li>A = π2r/2 x r </li></ul><ul><li>A = πr x r </li></ul><ul><li>A = πr 2 </li></ul>
