Circles and Volume
Understand and apply theorems about circles
MCC9-12.G.C.1 Prove that all circles are similar.
MCC9-12.G.C.2 Identify and describe relationships among inscribed angles, radii, and chords.
Include the relationship between central, inscribed, and circumscribed angles; inscribed angles
on a diameter are right angles; the radius of a circle is perpendicular to the tangent where the
radius intersects the circle.

MCC9-12.G.C.3 Construct the inscribed and circumscribed circles of a triangle, and prove
properties of angles for a quadrilateral inscribed in a circle.

MCC9-12.G.C.4 Construct a tangent line from a point outside a given circle to the circle.
Find arc lengths and areas of sectors of circles

Find arc lengths and areas of sectors of circles

MCC9-12.G.C.5 Derive using similarity the fact that the length of the arc intercepted by an
angle is proportional to the radius, and define the radian measure of the angle as the constant of
proportionality; derive the formula for the area of a sector.

Explain volume formulas and use them to solve problems

MCC9-12.G.GMD.1 Give an informal argument for the formulas for the circumference of a
circle, area of a circle, volume of a cylinder, pyramid, and cone. Use dissection arguments,
Cavalieris principle, and informal limit arguments.

MCC9-12.G.GMD.2 Give an informal argument using Cavalieris principle for the formulas
for the volume of a sphere and other solid figures.

MCC9-12.G.GMD.3 Use volume formulas for cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres to solve
