Summary: This module is from Fundamentals of Mathematics by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. This module discusses perimeter and circumference of geometric figures. By the end of the module students should know what a polygon is, know what perimeter is and how to find it, know what the circumference, diameter, and radius of a circle is and how to find each one, know the meaning of the symbol π π and its approximating value and know what a formula is and four versions of the circumference formula of a circle.
