Q4, W6: April 26-29 Geometry

TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject AreaGeometry Honors
Grade Level8
Week #April 26-30
Unit of InstructionUnit 8: Circles with and without Coordinates
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-C.1.2:  Identify and describe relationships among inscribed angles, radii, and chords. (Include the relationship between central, inscribed, and circumscribed angles; inscribed angles on a diameter are right angles; the radius of a circle is perpendicular to the tangent where the radius intersects the circle.)

MAFS.912.G-GPE.1.1:  Derive the equation of a circle of given center and radius using the Pythagorean Theorem; complete the square to find the center and radius of a circle given by an equation.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • identify central angles, inscribed and circumscribed angles, diameters, radii, chords, tangents 
  • use the sum of the measures of the central angels of a circle with no interior points in common is 360°.
  • describe the relationship between a central angle, inscribed angle, or circumscribed angle and the arc it intercepts.
  • recognize that an inscribed angle whose sides intersect the endpoints of the diameter of a circle is a right angle and that the radius of a circle is perpendicular to the tangent where the radius intersects the circle.
  • use Pythagorean Theorem to prove lines tangent to a circle at its radius.
  • identify the center and radius of a circle given its equation.
  • draw a right triangle with a horizontal leg, a vertical leg, and the radius of a circle as its hypotenuse
  • write the equation of a circle by using the distance formula (Pythagorean Theorem), the coordinates of a circle’s center, and the circle’s radius.
  • rewrite an equation of a circle in general (quadratic) form to standard form by completing the square.
Classroom Activities

Tuesday:

  1. Students will do an activity called “Build Understanding for the Equation of a Circle.”
  2. We will watch some of Math Nation Section 12, Topic 5
  3. Students will do IXL V.3

Wednesday:

  1. I will give students notes on Tangents and Secants of Circles
  2. Student will do IXL:  New!  Angles formed by chords, secants, and tangents

Thursday/Friday:

  • I will introduce completing the square
  • I will show them how to convert from the general form to the standard form of the equation of a circle by completing the square
  • We will do some of IXL V.5 together and then they will do for a grade
