### Circle Graphs

A circle graph is a graph that represents data using sections of a circle.
Sector - A section of a circle formed by 2 radii and the arc of the circle connecting by 2 radii.

Eg. Circle Graph, favourite N.F.L teams

General

This is more specific

Pets of students in Mr. W's class ( 24 students )

Questions.

1) What is the title of the graph? Pets of students in Mr. W's class ( 24 Students )

2) What are the different catagories of the graph? cat, dog, other, no pets.

3) How many percent of the class has a dog? 25%
How many students have a dog? 6

4) How many percent of the class has a cat? 33%
How many students have a cat? 8

5) What percent of the circle is represented by all sectors? 100%

Sorry, just go to the link. it wouldn't let my upload it.
By the way, tell me what i need to improve on. Thaanks :)

### Area

Area is the space a shape takes up. It is described in square units. (4 cm 2)

Review:

Area of a square or rectangle:

Length times width.
A=L x W
A=6
x 2
A=12 cm 2

Area of a parallelogram

Base times height

A= B x H
A= 10 x 5
A= 50 m 2

Area of a circle

A= pi r 2

Use pieces of circle to create a shape close to a parallelogram.

Area problems

find the area of a circle with the radius of 10 m.

A= Pi r 2.
A=3.14 x 10 2
A=3.14 x 100
A=314 m 2.

Find area of following circles:

8 cm
A= pi r 2
A= 3.14 x 82
A= 3.14 x 64
A= 200.96 cm2

14.8 m
A= pi r 2
A= 3.14 x 14.82
A= 3.14 x 219.04
A= 687.79 m2

Divide the diameter by 2 to get the radius. 20 cm / 2 is 10 cm.
A= pi r 2
A= 3.14 x 10
2
A= 3.14 x 100
A= 314 cm 2

6.8 m / 2 is 3.4
A= pi r 2
A= 3.14 x 3.4
2
A= 3.14 x 11.56
A= 36.30 m 2

### Finding a diameter, circumference, radius of a circle.

The picture above is the radius and the diameter of a circle.

This is what we worked on in Math on March 19. 2010.

Find the diameter of a circle with a radius of 12.6 m.
Show the formula you need and all the work.
• d = 2r
• d = 2 ( 12.6 )
• d = 25. 2 m
Find the radius of a circle when the diameter is 10.5 cm.
Show the formula and work. Remember, when finding
the radius of a circle, make sure you divide it by two.
• r = d / 2
• r = 10.5 / 2
• r = 5.25 cm
Find the circumference of a circle with a diameter of 3 mm.
Show formula and work.
• c = π d
• c = 3.14 ( 3 )
• c = 9.42 mm
Find the circumference of a circle with a radius of 5m.
Show formula and work.
• c = 2 π r
• c = 2 (314 ) ( 5 )
• c = 10 ( 3.14 )
• c = 31.4 m
When finding a circumference, you have to divide it by π.
When finding a diameter, you have to multiply the number by 2.
And when finding the radius, you divide it by two. Hope this helps. (:

### Circles

Parts of a circle
-centre
-diameter
-circumference-is the distance around a circle
-usually represented by c

-this is a linear measurement

-pi-is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter

Pi is usually 3.14

Here is what we learned on Monday

Cheese 6/6=1 5/6 Bacon 6/6 5/6 1 5/6+ 1 5/6=
Here is one way to add this
1+1+5/6+5/6=
2+5/6+5/6=
2+10/6=
2+6/6+ 4/6=
2+1+4/6=
3 4/6
Lowest Terms: 2/3

Another strategy you can use is to create a diagram.

Take one from the last one to make the second one whole. That gives us 3 wholes and 4/6. In Lowest terms we got 3 2/3.

2.Find a common denominator for the fraction
4.Add the whole numbers to the fractions

The word "And" in math means decimal or addition eg. 1.5 or 1+1/2

Sorry about posting this so late, I had a bit of trouble with posting this.
I hope you enjoyed my blog post, tell me if I made any mistakes or if I could improve on anything:)

### Unlike Denominator

3 3/8 - 1 1/2=???
1.Find the common denominator
2.Regroup
3.Then change into a mixed fraction.

Another way:

## Wednesday, March 3, 2010

subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. you must find a common denominator and use a equivalent fraction.

## Tuesday, March 2, 2010

### Adding Fractions with unlike denominators

eg.1/2 +1/3

1 apple + 1 orange = 2 fruits

We must find something they have in common.
-like a multiple of the denominators on a set fraction.

eg.a common denominator for 1/4 and 1/6 is 12 because a common multiple of 4 and 6 is 12.
4-
4,8,12✓,16
6-6,12✓,18,24

eg. 1/2 + 1/3
