Get your students up and moving as they practice calculating area and circumference of circles.
This is an Around the Room Activity that requires students to use knowledge of circles to calculate the area and circumference, given a radius or diameter. Students are able to guide their own progress as they make their way around the room, able to check their own work without the teacher.
"Instructions: Print the stations and post them around your classroom (careful not to put the stations in alphabetical order!). Give each student a sheet to record their work as they work through each station. For this activity. students may work alone or in pairs. I usually give each pair (or single person) 60 seconds to get to a station. From there the activity starts, and students are allowed to work through the problems at their own pace. The “Answer” at the top of the problem is the answer to another problem posted somewhere else around the room. Once the student has solved the problem, they must search for their answer posted at the top of another problem posted elsewhere in the room. They repeat the process until they have completed all of the problems."
