Now it's time to take some notes. In your notebook, you should label a section called Circumference and Area of Circles. Please write today's date as well. In your notes, you should write down the definititions of:
Radius -
Diameter -
Circumference -
Pi -
Remember to leave enough room for a definition and picture! Complete the following lesson to get your definitions.
Radius, diameter, & circumference
Finished, but I didn't take notes
Finished AND I took notes!
Didn't finish, but I took notes
Didn't do a thang...

To qualify for an around-the-world speed record, a pilot must cover a distance no less than the circumference of the Tropic of Cancer, cross all meridians, and land on the same airfield where she started.

Write an equation to solve for the minimum distance that a pilot must fly to qualify for an around-the-world speed record? Use parantheses to denote multiplication.
