circler.noun
Parts of a circle include its diameter, circumference, radius, chord, arc and sector. To explore the properties of a circle, wrap a string around a soda can and measure the length of the string (the circumference of the circle formed by the string). Then lay the string directly across the top of the soda can so that it divides the top in half. Measure the string's length (the diameter of the circle formed by the top of the can). Divide the circumference (C) by the diameter (D). Do this for several circles. You should find that the ratio of C/D is about 3:1 for all of your circles, both large and small. This ratio is often represented by the symbol ð. Another experiment compares running around the circumference of a circular track to heading directly across along its diameter. For every 3 steps around the circular track, a runner only needs to take 1 step directly across..© Microsoft Corporation. All Rights Reserved. All rights reserved.
