In your books sketch a circle and label the parts using the key words.

People first realised that there is a connection between the radius of a circle and its the circumference when they realised that the longer the piece of string they used to tether their goats, the bigger the circular patch of grass they could eat.

Eratosthenes was born 194 years BC, long before calculators, space ships and computers where invented and yet he was able to calculate the circumference of the Earth amazingly accurately.

In today’s lesson your task is to investigate the relationship between the diameter of the circle and the circumference.

In other wordsHow many times bigger is the Circumference

than the Diameter?

You have 3 Minutes!

• In your groups use the tape measures provided to measure:-

a) the diameterb) the circumference of each tin and record the measurements in the table provided.

To check the accuracy of your measurements we are going to collect the class results.

To check the accuracy of your measurements we are going to collect the class results.

Sweet Corn Diameter Circumference

To check the accuracy of your measurements we are going to collect the class results.

Object Diameter Circumference How many times bigger the Circumference is than the diameter.

Clock 20 cm 62.8 cm

Bin 28 cm 87.9 cm

Glue 3 cm 9.4cm

Sweet Corn

Beans

Add the class results to these results that I collected earlier. As a group decide how to work out how many times bigger the circumference of each circle is than the diameter. As a group discuss what you notice about these results.

The blue dot and the red dot are travelling at the same speed. How many times do you think the red dot will travel across the circle while the blue dot travels around the edge?

Once acrosstwice across

So the Circumference of the circle is a little bit more than 3x bigger than the diameter.

three times acrossand a bit further!

The symbol is the Greek letter pi. It represents how many times bigger the circumference of any

circle is than its diameter.

The symbol

represents 3.14159.........

To one decimal place the Circumference of any circle is 3.14

times bigger than the diameter.

Roughly how big is the Circumference of this circle ?

In your groups find the circumferences of the circles and put the letters in the corresponding answer box.

Success Criteria – Learning Outcomes

I measured accurately using a tape measure (Level 3).

I roughly estimated the circumference of circles by multiplying the diameters by 3 (Level 4).

I estimated the circumference of circles by multiplying the diameter by Pi (Level 5).

I calculated the radius, diameter or circumference of circles and semi circles using one of the other measurements (Level 6).

Plenary – Probing Questions

What is the minimum information you need to be able to find the Circumference of this circle?
