Today, as a class we'll be working through a long exercise on circle geometry. This requires careful attention to detail with your reasoning, and it also often requires the ability to see geometric features and properties that are not immediately obvious.

Your laptops are a great tool to enable you to help each other. Today, you'll be collaboratively putting together solutions for the entire exercise - something that would take you hours to do on your own! This way, if you are struggling with a particular question, you can see how one of your friends has solved it.

To start, download the template for typing up your solutions. Then, re-save it with the following naming method:

e.g. circles_ch9_soln_9A_3b.docx is the solution for question 3(b) in exercise 9A

Work out your solution on paper first, and then transfer it into electronic form. Your completed solution for each question should be uploaded to this dedicated section of the website: Circle Solutions.

Once everyone has submitted their solutions, I will compile them all into one large document for your downloading convenience. 8-)
