Parts of the circle 2

# PONG game to practice'Parts of the circle 2' for 8th grade

### Identify parts of the circle : arc, chord, sector, segment, tangent

#### Arc

An arc of a circle is any part of it's circumference. Arcs are used when describing sectors and segments of circles.

#### Chord

A chord is a straight line that separates a circle into two parts. A chord defines two arcs on the circumference of a circle at the two points where it touches the circumference.

#### Sector

A sector of a circle is the area enclosed by two radii connected by an arc on the perimeter. When you think of pie charts, each wedge shaped area is a sector of the circle.

#### Segment

A segment of a circle is an area encolosed by an arc and a chord. If you imagine the circle as a round cheese, a segment is what you would get if you sliced through the cheese from edge to edge with a cheese wire (as long as the cheese was two-dimensional..).

#### Tangent

A tangent is a straight line outside a circle that touches the circle at one point only. The point where the tangent touches the circle is called the point of tangency. The radius of the circle from the point of tangency is always at right angles to the tangent.

With our Pong math game you will be practicing the topic "Parts of the circle 2" from 8th grade / Geometry & measures / Circle / Circle. The math in this game consists of 16 questions that ask you to identify parts of the circle: arc, chord, sector, segment and tangent.

This is our version of the classic early computer game "Breakout" (itself a development of the even earlier "Pong" game - we prefer that name) where a player controls a bar that knocks a ball or puck around the screen.

In our version of Pong/Breakout, there are 3 types of bricks for you to break: green bricks are worth just 2 points; yellow bricks are worth a whopping 50 points; breaking white bricks, which are worth 10 points, wins you a math question from the topic you have chosen.

You start with 5 lives. If the ball goes below the paddle, you lose a life and 200 points. The game ends when you answer all 10 questions or lose all your lives.

### Notes

1. This version of Pong is a one player game to learn or revise math
2. Our PONG for math is a scoring game - play a few times and set a personal best score!
3. Addictive! You may end up trying to avoid the white bricks so that you can play for longer...
