# GCSE Topic - Circle Theorems? watch

1. 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.

Thanks.
Learn how to prove the theorems.
3. 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?
4. 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
5. This might help.
6. 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.
8. Thanks everyone. I think the poster idea will help actually, but I love the idea of a song
