## Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Write It Wednesday-Circles - Section 1: Launch

Today's launch called on my kids to apply what they knew about circumference and area. If working with the diameter, find the radius and use that to find the area. We also talked about following the steps if given the radius, how to find the circumference. I want them to be able to interchange the two.
