Chapter 10: Circles, Angles, Arcs: 

Create a problem similar to 10-17 (but more challenging / in-depth!).  Your drawing should be done approximately to scale.  The problem should involve at minimum:

  • one circle
  • one triangle
  • an inscribed quadrilateral
  • one set of parallel lines
  • central angles, inscribed angles, chord-chord angles and angles outside the circle.

This should result in several angles and arcs to find.  Try to create a problem where students can find all angles and arcs starting with the least amount of information possible.  Your final product should include the problem statement and a separate solution (each answer must have a brief reason to explain where it came from).  Please put your solution in the form of a copy of the problem with the values filled in.  Be sure to check your work to ensure that there are no contradictions which arise (such as a triangle with more than 180 degrees or a total degrees around your circle exceeding 360!)  You may work alone or in pairs on this.  Remember that presentation is 1/3 of your grade!  Extra credit will be awarded if you do this completely on the computer (using Word or PowerPoint) and submit it electronically.
