# Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about other students’ understandings of the area of a circle.

## Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

- How is the formula for the area of a circle similar to the formula for the area of a regular polygon?
- How did knowing the formula for the area of a polygon help you come up with the formula for the area of a circle?
- Why do you use square units for area?
