# Cazoom Maths Teaching Resources: Large Circles

## What is the resource?

This PDF offers individual, sizable circle shapes ready to print. Variations with blank interiors or faint 'pie chart' divisions are included. Suits various levels.

## Why are circles important?

They might seem basic, but circles offer endless maths & real-world connections:

- Understanding Pi: Relating circumference to diameter leads to this amazing number.
- Wheels & movement: Circle design underlies how we get around.
- Area & size: How much material covers a circular table? These questions all use circles.
- Data display: Pie charts offer an at-a-glance visualisation of proportions.

## Why is this resource helpful?

Large circles make maths activities hands-on and engaging:

- Physical fractions: Children can cut, fold, and explore parts of a whole circle.
- Angle exploration: Circles hold 360° – kids can find central angles by folding.
- Making measurements: Diameter, circumference, radius... practice on big circles is clearer.
- Creative potential: Art projects, clock faces, games ... circles inspire diverse uses.
- Printable PDF: Ensures enough circles for activities, demonstrations, or displays.

This resource encourages learning by doing. Circle concepts 'click' for kids as they actively manipulate and see connections.
