Going around in Circles

With thanks to http://www.greatmathsteachingideas.com, I found the brilliant Circles are Awesome website.

The graphics and style are very user-friendly and accessible, with a pleasing simplicity matched by the clear explanations. The description and animation make a compelling argument for ‘any circle can be defined by three points’:

The interactivity here is really elegant – do give it a go for (nerdy) little thrill (and little dreams about how to get your students to be fascinated by circles).

Lastly, there is an interactive section that lets you play with circles AND colours – perfect. If you haven’t already gone to this website…go now!
