**PARTS OF A CIRCLE (Week 3-4) MATH MODULE Quarter 2, Page 13**

**Circle**

A ** circle** is the set of all points in the plane that are the same distance away from a specific point, called the

**center**. It comes from the Latin word “Circulus” which means disc.

**Parts of a Circle**

**Circumference** – The circumference of a circle is the distance around the circle or simply the perimeter of the circle

**Center** – The center of a circle is a point inside the circle and is at an equal distance from all of the points on its circumference.

**Radius **– The radius is the segment formed by connecting the center of the circle and a point on the circumference.

**Diameter** – The diameter of the circle is the distance from a point on the circumference to the other passing through the center of the circle. the length of a diameter is twice the radius.

**Chords** – A chord of a circle is a straight line segment whose endpoints both lie on the circle. “All diameters are chord but not all chords are diameter.”

**Sector** – A sector is the part of a circle between two radii and an arc.

**Arc** – An arc is the part of the circumference at the edge of the sector.

**Segment** – A segment is a region bounded by a chord of a circle and the intercepted arc of the circle.

**Secant Line** – Secant line is the infinite line extension of a chord.

**Tangent Line **– The tangent line to a circle is a line that intersects a circle at exactly one point.
