About the Book
A thorough yet amusing introduction to the geometry of circles with activities by a triedandtrue team.
Wheels, clocks and coins. Balls and buttons. Circles are everywhere, and one of the basic geometric shapes. In a book bursting with color and cheer, students can learn the fundamental properties of circles. Terms such as sector, chord and arc are clearly defined. Handson activities demonstrate how to find the radius, diameter and area of a circle. With this handy and lively guide kids can avoid spinning their wheels and get on the road to becoming geometry pros.
