GeoGebra Tutorial 29 – Animation, Roses and Radian

This is the 29th GeoGebra tutorial of the GeoGebra Intermediate Tutorial Series. If this is your first time to use GeoGebra, you might want to read the GeoGebra Essentials Series.

In this tutorial, we learn the concept of radian.  One radian is equal to the subtended angle of the arc with the same length as the circle’s radius. In this tutorial, we rotate radius AB’ about point A, the center of the circle. As the point rotates, point C goes back and forth from A to B’ at the same speed. The path of point C forms petals (see red petals in the figures below). The ratio of the maximum number of petals formed and the number of rotations is a good approximation of \pi Instructions
