    Does anyone know of a good way to remember circle theorems because I can never seem to retain the information on the topic no matter how many times I look over it and practice.

    Thanks.

    Thank you. Do you know any specific techniques or a way to remember it, or is it simply a case of reading and practicing until it stays in your brain?

    I made a poster with all the diagrams on, which really helped. Also there is a circle theorums song on youtube , which is quite catchy

    Just take a protractor in with you and and measure the angles. E.g. if you get a question involving a circle and a tangent, just measure the angle with a protractor. Got 89.9 degrees? Assume it's 90. Bit dodgy!

    What happens if the angles are only given in terms of x and y for example?
    My maths is good for circle theorem.

    Thanks everyone. I think the poster idea will help actually, but I love the idea of a song
