A figure with six sides and six angles.

- Textbook:

- Man–Made: A plate illustrates an example of a circle.

- Natural: This circular opening in the ground is probably the home of some animal.

A closed, curved two dimensional figure. All the points on the circle are the same distance from the center.

- Man–Made: A street drain illustrates the radius of a circle.

- Natural: By looking at Sindy’s eye we can see the radius of her pupil.

- Textbook:

The radius is a line segment joining the center to any point on the circle.

- Man–Made: A battery on top of a table represents a tangent line.

- Natural: A vine grapes can also represent a tangent line.

- Textbook:

A tangent is tangent line is a straight line that touches a function at only one point.

- Man–Made: This sign shows a chord with a line across to keep out people from smoking in that area.

- Natural: This cross section photo of a tree shows a line joining two points of the trunk.

- Textbook:

A line segment joining two point on a circle.
