In this unit, students will use circle theorems to solve angle problems. They will learn how to prove and use the facts that the angle in a semi-circle is 90°, that the angle formed at the centre of a circle is double the angle formed on the circumference, that angles in the same segment are equal, that a perpendicular from the centre of a circle to a chord bisects the chord, that opposite angles in cyclic quadrilaterals are equal, that a tangent and a radius make a right angle, that two tangents from a point are equal and that the angle between a chord and a tangent is equal to the angle in the alternate segment.
