Circumference, Diameter & Radius

Review slides for practice problems and notes.

Radius - Diameter - Circumference

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

Where does TT (pi) come from?

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
