Middle and high schoolers solve problems based on a variety of geometric concepts, including area of various figures, similar and congruent triangles, geometric transformations, and parallel lines and the angle pairs formed by a transversal. The one page worksheet contains sixteen multiple choice questions. Answers are included.
Learners address 14 questions that include naming all pairs of opposite and supplementary angles for sets of intersecting lines and then, finding the measure of the unknown angle. They determine the measure of the angle that is complementary to the one given. They identify pairs of angles as alternate or corresponding and then, find the measure of each unknown angle. Finally they are challenged with figuring the measurements of unknown angles in polygons.
Learners solve problems based on a variety of geometry concepts including transformations, the Pythagorean Theorem, similar figures, and parallel lines cut by a transversal. The one page interactive worksheet contains twenty multiple choice problems and is self checking.
Middle schoolers identify the correspondence between pairs of angles. They fill in the blank for seven questions. Learners investigate congruency using their graphing calculator and by following detailed directions. They identify alternate exterior angles on their graphing calculator. There are seven calculator problems and four questions about a pair of parallel lines cut by a transversal.
Learners review pairs of angles: adjacent, complementary, supplementary, linear, and vertical. They create flashcards by sketching pairs of lines that appear to be parallel with a transversal. They identify pairs of angles by their relationship on the back for future reference. Finally, they play a flashcard quiz game with a partner to review what they learned.
Eighth graders work in small groups with manipulatives to investigate conjectures about angles. Students receive a list of questions to answer. They create a graphic organizer to use in summarizing relationships among angles in intersecting, perpendicular and parallel lines cut by a transversal. Students investigate a real-world situation requiring finding an angle that can not be measured directly.
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.
