Circle Theorem InfoNotes & Activities

Circle theorems are one of those topics in Geometry that don't have a lot of application but is a great unit to "think" about math. I don't give a test over this unit, I have my students write a choose your own adventure story (linked below) to demonstrate their understanding. I also have explorations and… Continue reading Circle Theorem InfoNotes & Activities
