Math problems of the week: 6th grade Connected Math vs. Singapore Math

The first pages in the chapters on circles sections of 6th grade Connected Math and Singapore Math:

I. From Connected Math "Going Around in Circles" section [click to enlarge]:

II. From Singapore Math Primary Mathematics 6 Workbook "Circles" chapter [click to enlarge]:

III. Extra Credit

Which is more mathematically instructive: constructing and measuring circles, or going around in them?
