This product contains several activities to help students calculate the area and circumference of circles.
1. Circumference vs Area Situation Card Sort
2. Diameter vs Radius Situation Card Sort
3. Exact vs Approximate Answer Card Sort
4. Circles: Area & Circumference Task Cards
5. Circles: Scavenger Hunt
The situation card sorts contain several situations that students have to identify what is being represented. These situation cards will help students build up to working with word problems and be able to identify what is being asked of in the word problems or what information is given that relates back to the formulas.
The exact & approximate answer card sort has students sort information relating to four categories: exact circumference, exact area, approximate circumference, and approximate area. The students have to identify whether the cards represent circumference or area by looking at the units.
The area and circumference task cards and scavenger hunt contain several questions requiring the students find exact and approximate area and circumference of circles. Word problems are also included, as well as a few questions requiring students to find the radius or diameter using the information given about area & circumference.
The scavenger hunt and task cards can be used in groups or individually. These cards can be printed four to a page or on a whole page to be posted around the room!
This product comes with two PDF versions.
1. One version that has all cards ready to be printed on 8.5 by 11 paper.
2. Another version that has four cards ready to be printed on one 8.5 by 11 paper.
I suggest laminating them so you can use them over and over again! These will look best in color, but will also print out in grayscale.
Thank you for your support!
