Circles Open-book Task

  • You can ONLY use your notes from class, not someone else’s (be prepared to hand these in along with your test)
  • NO phones or textbooks
  • I highly HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend having a formula sheet with area and circumference of a circle as well as the re-arranged formulas that isolate radius and diameter. I have put this on the board multiple times over the past week.
