A tangent to a circle at point P with coordinates (x, y) is a straight line that touches the circle at one point.
In this class, students will consider the equation of a tangent - in the form of y = mx + c as a tangent to a circle is a straight line. And since a tangent meets a radius at 90 degrees, students will also review how to find the gradient of perpendicular lines and in turn find the equation of a tangent.
This is a great class for students who find this area of Maths tricky: to cement existing knowledge and understand the topics explained in a different way.
Safeguarding reminder:The safety of your child is of the utmost importance. All of our classes are pre-recorded to remove any concerns around live participation. For reruns of our past live classes, students' webcams and microphones were disabled and only the chat history, if participation was requested, is visible.
