Special Quadrilateral Clean Up - Section 2: Notes: Circles Vocabulary

As I think back on the sequencing of this unit, I really am convinced that this is a great time in the unit to have students write their own definitions as it reinforces the components of good definitions (classification and differentiation) while giving students a chance to review some foundational terms (line versus line segment, for example) in a new-ish context.

# Special Quadrilateral Clean Up

Lesson 6 of 8

## Objective: Students will be able to define special quadrilaterals, triangles, and circles terms.

#### Notes: Circles Vocabulary

*15 min*

Since this is an Introduction to Geometry unit, students need to know basic circles vocabulary. I gives notes on the following terms:

- Circle, radius, diameter
- Congruent circles, concentric circles
- Arc of a circle, endpoints
- Semicircle, minor arc, major arc
- Central angle, arc measure

After students write these definitions and draw sketches to match, I pass out examples and non-examples of chords, diameters, and tangents. I ask students to write a good definition for each term. I call on student volunteers to read their group's definition for each of these terms and make edits if necessary.
