There are 366 different Starters of The Day, many to
choose from. You will find below some starters on the topic of Circles. A lesson starter does not have to be on the same
topic as the main part of the lesson or the topic of the previous lesson. It is
often very useful to revise or explore other concepts by using a starter based on a
totally different area of Mathematics.

### Circles Starters:

March 14th is Pi Day. The third month and the 14th day relates to 3.14 which is pi to three significant figures. How many figures of pi can you memorise?

It is called Refreshing Revision because every time you refresh the page you get different revision questions.

Write down the names of all the mathematical shapes you know.

## Exercises
