Providing an exploration of parallel lines, this resource requires students to not only practice calculations, but also to analyze angles. By asking viewers to decide whether two lines are parallel based upon the information given, this second part of the parallel lines series becomes a critical-thinking activity.
While exploring the concept of transversals, Sal discusses corresponding angles, congruent angles, and opposite/vertical angles. He provides a thorough summation of these mathematical concepts. It is the first installment in a series covering parallel lines.
A motivating activity is coupled with the use of algebra to explore the process for identifying the value of an angle. Somehow, it feels like a bit like magic when Sal shows the solution for the final problem. Also, it would be worthwhile to consider using this resource as test prep for the SAT.
In this second video in the series on angles, students explore the concept of supplementary and complementary angles. In addition, intersecting lines and opposite angles are explained.
As a preparation for something called the angle game, a geometry video covers the concept of parallel lines, transversals, slope, opposite angles and corresponding angles. It is the third part of a series detailing the rules and laws regarding angles.
Given a pair of parallel lines and a triangle in between, geometers prove that the sum of the interior angles is 180 degrees. This quick quest can be used as a pop quiz or exit ticket for your geometry class.
Tenth graders identify special pair angles. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders identify linear pair, adjacent, vertical and supplementary angles. they differentiate between the similarity and difference of these measurements and how to relate to each other.
It is not a unique or exciting instructional activity, but rather the typical demonstrations of transverse and longitudinal waves. Use a rope for modeling transverse waves, and a plastic coil or spring toy for longitudinal waves. Where this resource may most come in handy, is if you are teaching waves for the first time or need a refresher. The background information and instructional activity procedure are explained quite well.
Providing an exploration of parallel lines, this resource requires students to not only practice calculations, but also to analyze angles. By asking viewers to decide whether two lines are parallel based upon the information given, this second part of the parallel lines series becomes a critical-thinking activity.
In this geometry worksheet, students answer 16 questions in which they determine slope intercepts, complete proofs, write equations based on slopes and lines, and find the values of various angles. The last page contains a bonus section and the answers.
In this angle activity, students identify and find the measure of transversal and corresponding angles in five multiple choice problems.  The solutions are available by clicking on the "check it" button found on the bottom of the page.
Collaborative groups work with geometry manipulatives to investigate conjectures about angles. They create a graphic organizer to use in summarizing relationships among angles in intersecting, perpendicular and parallel lines cut by a transversal. This sharp lesson plan gets the class to investigate a real-world situation requiring finding an angle that cannot be measured directly.
Geometers identify and determine angle pair relationships when two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal. They review the concepts of angles by watching streaming video clips online, read definitions of lines and angles from index cards, and match vocabulary with their definitions. They use the SMART board to demonstrate the content.
Geometers explore parallel lines.  In this lesson, they examine the measures of the angles form when parallel lines are cut by a transversal.  The dynamic nature of the Cabri Jr. allows students to discover the relationships between the various angles in the figure. 
In this angle lesson, eighth and ninth graders explore angles made using parallel lines and a transversal. They identify the types of angles and the characteristics of each one. Puils create drawings that illustrate angle relationships in real world situations, and determine the measures of angles.
Students explore parallel lines. In this middle school geometry lesson, students explore the relationships between angles formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal. The dynamic nature of the TI-Nspire or TI-Nspire CAS technology allows students to form and verify conjectures regarding angle measurement.
Tenth graders explore the angle relationships that exist when two lines intersect. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders estimate the measure of given angles and use their graphing calculator tools. Students use this knowledge to find the missing angle measures in given diagrams; using their device's tools to confirm their results for each problem.
In this parallel lines and transversals worksheet, 10th graders solve 99 various types of problems that include types of parallel lines and transversals. They identify the special name for each pair of angles in the figures shown. Then, students determine the slope of a line passing through each set of points. They also graph the line that satisfies each description.
Students visualize the different angles (corresponding, alternate interior, and same-side interior) when coplanar lines are cut by a transversal. They utilize worksheets imbedded in this plan to do their explorations with.
Students study the concept of special angles. In this special angles lesson, students use reasoning to draw conclusions about special angle relationships concerning parallel lines cut by a transversal. Students also list all pairs of corresponding angle shown in the diagram and write a conjecture describing what they observe about corresponding angles.
