Description:

This activity helps students develop concepts and language regarding the size and positional relationship possibilities of three circles in the plane in a qualitative manner. They use terms such as overlapping, inside, and touching as they work systematically to find all possible arrangements. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, and ideas for extension. This activity can be a follow-up to "2 Rings" cataloged separately.
