KS3 and GCSE, circles (circumference formula) activity.
Real life application of circumference of a circle formula to work out the circumference of the Earth using altitude, speed and orbital time of the International Space Station. A good extension task is to then find percentage error between this answer and actual answer.
Teachers notes, internet links, the answer and workings are included, in both miles and kilometres, together with printer-friendly version of main slide.
