My juniors have started their venture into conics. In my support class, we have started to cover circles. I wanted a quick, decorative activity that would take less than 15 minutes but would still have my students solving problems. I allowed my students to either work by themselves or with one other person. Each grouping got a plate and had to label/find the following on it: 1) Label the radius and center of the paper plates 2) Find the radius and center of the circle described by the equation: _________________ 3) Write the equation of the circle with a center of _____ and radius of _____ 4) Create an equation for a circle and identify the center and radius of it I had each group tack their finished plate to my board and my class votes on the prettiest onethat group received a 120 on the assignment Pictures are below:
