Mr. Saucedo Milby High School Geometry

Objective: To find partial areas and circumferences of circles.

What you should know… Find the Circumference and the Area of a circle with diameter 10.

WHAT IS? ARC LENGTH An arc length is a fraction of the circumference.

The concept… Can you find the arc length of this Semicircle? What would the arc length be if we just wanted to use a quarter of the circle?

HOW DO WE FIND ARC LENGHTS? With the following proportion: Part of a circumference Whole Circumference circle Arc length пD = Portion of degrees Whole: Degrees in a = Central Angle 360

GUIDED EXAMPLE 1 Find the length of the arc:

Independent example Find the length of the arc AB.

SECTORS What is a sector?


GUIDED EXAMPLE 2 Find the area of the blue section

INDEPENDENT EXAMPLE Find the area of the shaded region.
