Circumference And Area Formulas Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems. The Circumference And Area Formulas learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 7.G.B.4 as written in the common core national math standards.

A radius of a circle is the measure from the center point of the circle to the edge. All radii in the same circle are equivalent. A diameter is a line that extends from edge to edge through the center point of a circle. All diameters in the same circle are equivalent. The diameter is twice the radius. Circumference of a circle is the distance around a circle. Pi or π is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. The area of a circle can be found using the formula A = πr2, where r is the radius, and π is estimated as 3.14 or 22/7.
The circumference can be found using the formula C = d π. If given only the radius, then the circumference can be found using C = 2 π r. Explain the relationship between the circumference and area. Given the circumference of a circle, determine the radius or diameter of the circle. After multiplying an original measurement of a circle (diameter, radius, circumference, or area) by a factor to create a new circle, describe how the new circle compares to the original circle.
