Circle Geometry Site

So, we have spent the last week investigating circle geometry using Geometer's Sketchpad. We have looked at chords, inscribed and central angles as well as tangent lines.

There is a fellow by the name of Ron Blond (a former Alberta teacher) that has developed a number of very interesting applets to help summarize what we have learned about circle geometry. Check out his site. It will be very useful in helping you quickly review what we have learned.

P.S. Have you made your one page sheet summarizing all of the properties we have learned?? Remember you get to use this on your exam next week. If you have not started this summary sheet you need to have it completed for Monday. It will be very helpful in completing your assignment on Monday.

Cheers!!! Have a great weekend.

Helpful was it
The applets on the site are very helpful in identifying how the angles are related also shows howthe tangent lines are related.
