# Area of Circles

Explore the formula for the area of a circle, by cutting it into sectors and rearranging the sectors to form a figure close to a parallelogram. By increasing the no. of sectors, students observe that the figure tends to a rectangle and get the formula for the area of the circle by finding the area of this rectangle.
