Tutorial

NOTICE: If you were having trouble viewing the video before it has been fixed. Sorry. =)

In this tutorial, you will learn about the important basic concepts needed to find the circumference and area of circles. Please be sure to have your notebook with you as you are watching it. Write down anything that YOU feel is important and will help you remember the key facts! You are encouraged to watch the tutorial, take a break, then watch it again. Just in case you missed something. =)

It would be a good idea to copy this into your notebook.

For those of you who may be wondering where TT (pi) comes from, here is a cool video that shows you. It's simply the number you get when you divide the circumference by the diameter. As TT (pi) is an irrational number (it never ends), it's easier to simply write it as a symbol, rather than attempt to write out 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288419716939937510582097494459230781
