Geometry is the study of space and the relationships of objects contained inside. It is one of the more relatable math courses, because it often answers that age-old question, "When am I ever going to use this in real life?" Look around you right now. Do you see any triangles? Can you spot any circles? Do you see any books that look like they are twice the size of other books?

If you want to study the shapes that shape our universe you can take our free online course. #CourseSpotlight | http://ow.ly/Sd2B305imPZ

#CourseSpotlight: Geometry

Unit 8: Circles

Circles are everywhere you look, for example, tires, pools, fans, and watches. You can probably think of several more items that are circular. In this unit, you will learn about circles and arcs, which are slices of the edge of a circle.

Believe it or not, arcs are used a lot in real life. The feet of a rocking chair are arcs; the crust on a slice of pizza is an arc. Anything that looks like an incomplete circle is an arc. How are these arcs made? What kinds are there? How can we measure them? These are questions that you will explore in this unit.
