Lesson Plan: The Power of a Point Theorem Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to find the power of a point with respect to a circle.
Students will be able to
- find the power of a point with respect to a given circle,
- use the power of a point theorem to find a missing radius or a missing distance between the center of the circle and a point,
- solve problems using the power of a point theorem.
Students should already be familiar with
- the parts of a circle,
- similarity of triangles.
