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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Students stud angles, and then play the "What's Your Angle?" game. They complete at least 10 computer generated problems from the Angles Applet.
Junior geometers define and provide examples of different angles. Acting as emerging engineers, they take hands-on and computer-centered approaches to explore an alternate interior, alternate exterior, adjacent, corresponding, right, obtuse, and acute angles.
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.
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. 
Students explore parallel lines. In this middle school geometry instructional activity, 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 investigate parallel lines and their special angles cut by a transversal. In this geometry activity, 10th graders identify and find corresponding, alternate interior, and alternate exterior angles formed when parallel lines are cut by a transversal. They define the theorem that represents these angles.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.
