measuring the Unit Circle
- Judah L Schwartz
The radius R of the circle is 1. The BLUE segment tangent to the circle is h units long. The GREEN segment tangent to the circle is w units long. Can you find a geometric way to relate R, h, and w ? Can you find an algebraic way to relate R, h, and w ? What questions could / would you put to your class based on this applet ?
