Geometry Puzzle: The Size of an Arc (VIDEO!)
Here is a cute geometry puzzle: Imagine you are an archeologist and have come across just a small section of a rim of an ancient wheel. What size wheel did it come from?
This is a great puzzle to give to geometry students too. Hand out a picture of an arc of a circle and ask if is possible to find the measure of that arc using only basic tools – and them have students actually do it.
This video reveals all.
