One of the most beautiful shapes in mathematics, which mathematicians have revealed to exhibit hundreds of magical properties—it is arguably the “Miss Universe” of geometric shapes.

No geometric shape has mesmerized or bedeviled members of the mathematical brethren more than the circle—not even the much-loved triangle (which gives birth to Trigonometry) comes close to stealing the circle’s oft-counter-intuitive properties.

A polygon with an infinite amount of sides. Also, a set of all points all equidistant from the center.

In the L Word, it is what Papi does to Alice to make her so so OH OH!! HAPPY!! She loves those circles.

A geometric shape characterized by all points being on the same geometric plane as well as being the same distance from the center. The distance from the center to any point on the perimeter is known as the radius. The perimeter is also known as the circumference. Two times the radius, or the distance from any point on the perimeter threw the center and onto another point on the perimeter is known as the diameter.

A gathering place characterized by its general shape being a geometric circle.

The ratio of a circles volume to a square inscribed in the circle is equal to 2 times Pi divided by 4.

Lets go meet at the circle.

1) a shape in which all points are equidistant from the fixed, center point

2) one of the easiest shapes to make in applications such as Autodesk Inventor

3) a group of people with a shared profession, interests, or acquaintances

1) I used my compass to make this circle around your drawing

2) Hey, what are you making on CAD?

A CIRCLEEE!

3) We always have discussions at work within our circle.
