• Lesson Plan Lesson 4 Circumference Mental and Oral Starter Pupils to use the mini white boards to round numbers to one decimal place. Main Activity Pupils to work in groups to measure the diameter and circumference of tins to discoverer the relationship between the diameter of a circle and its circumference. First allow time for each group to collect the measurements of each of the three tins. Then collect the class results to ensure that all pupils have accurate measurements. Then give pupils the table with the previously collected results and get them to add the correct measurements for the tins. Ask pupils to calculate how many times bigger each circumference is than the diameter. Introduce the concept of Pi. Pupils to use mini whiteboards to give rough estimates and then more accurate estimates for the circumference of different circles. Then pupils to work in groups to complete the missing measurements in the table. Plenary Probing Question for mini white boards - What is the minimum information you need to be able to find the area of a circle. Objectives and Habits of Mind To accurately measure using a tape measure (Level 3) To estimate the Circumference of a circle by multiplying the diameter by 3 (Level 4) To estimate the Circumference of a circle by multiplying the diameter by Pi(Level 5) To calculate the radius, diameter or circumference of circles and semi circles when given one other measurement. (Level 6) I can work well in a group, listening attentively and taking on different roles when needed. I can negotiate and follow ground rules, to ensure fairness and cooperation when working with others. Keywords Radius, Circumference, Diameter, Pi

• In your books sketch a circle and label the parts using the key words.
• Slide 13
• People first realised that there is a connection between the radius of a circle and its the circumference when they realised that the longer the piece of string they used to tether their goats, the bigger the circular patch of grass they could eat.
• Slide 14
• Eratosthenes was born 194 years BC, long before calculators, space ships and computers where invented and yet he was able to calculate the circumference of the Earth amazingly accurately.
• Slide 15
• In todays lesson your task is to investigate the relationship between the diameter of the circle and the circumference. In other words How many times bigger is the Circumference than the Diameter?
• Slide 16
• You have 3 Minutes! In your groups use the tape measures provided to measure:- a) the diameter b) the circumference of each tin and record the measurements in the table provided.

As a group decide how to work out how many times bigger the circumference of each circle is than the diameter. As a group discuss what you notice about these results.

• The blue dot and the red dot are travelling at the same speed. How many times do you think the red dot will travel across the circle while the blue dot travels around the edge? Once across twice across So the Circumference of the circle is a little bit more than 3x bigger than the diameter. three times across and a bit further!
• Slide 23
• The symbol is the Greek letter pi. It represents how many times bigger the circumference of any circle is than its diameter.
• Slide 24
• The symbol represents 3.14159......... To one decimal place the Circumference of any circle is 3.14 times bigger than the diameter.

• Success Criteria Learning Outcomes I measured accurately using a tape measure (Level 3). I roughly estimated the circumference of circles by multiplying the diameters by 3 (Level 4). I estimated the circumference of circles by multiplying the diameter by Pi (Level 5). I calculated the radius, diameter or circumference of circles and semi circles using one of the other measurements (Level 6).
