Procedure

  1. Introduction (5 minutes)

    • Begin the lesson by asking the students if they have ever seen a circular object and what it looks like.
    • Introduce the topic of finding the area of a circle and explain why it is important.
  2. Defining a Circle (5 minutes)

    • Use the whiteboard to draw a circle and label the different parts (radius, diameter, circumference).
    • Ask students to write down the definitions of each part in their notebooks.
  3. Fractions of a Circle (5 minutes)

    • Draw a circle on the whiteboard and ask students to shade in a certain fraction of the circle (e.g. 1/2, 3/4, 1/6).
    • Ask students to explain how they arrived at their answer.
  4. Area of a Circle Formula (5 minutes)

    • Introduce the formula for finding the area of a circle (A = πr^2) and explain how to use it.
    • Write out a few examples on the whiteboard and walk the students through the process.
  5. Calculate the Area of a Circle (5 minutes)

    • Hand out circular objects of different sizes to the students and ask them to measure the radius of each object.
    • Ask students to use the formula to calculate the area of each object and record in their notebooks.
  6. Conclusion (5 minutes)

    • Review the different parts of a circle and the formula for finding its area.
    • Ask students to share any real-world examples where the area of a circle might be useful (e.g. calculating the area of a pizza).
