8th Grade Math Parallel and Transversal Lines
Eighth graders label and define geometrical lines and angles. They identify angles on the board as acute, obtuse, straight, or right. In groups, 8th graders build with masking tape on the wall a pair of parallel lines, and a transverse line.

Proving Slope Criteria for Parallel & Perpendicular Lines
This lesson launches with learners graphing the fourth vertex of a given rectangle, and finding the length and slope of one of its sides; and ends with learners writing a summary sheet for parallel and perpendicular lines. In between,...

New Review Parallel Lines Cut by a Transversal
Pupils study angle measurements between different types of angles associated with parallel lines and transversals. The independent practice asks pupils to identify the types of angles in a diagram and to determine the measure of angles.

Finding Slope of a Line from Graphs, Tables, and Ordered Pairs
Middle schoolers explore the concept of slope in numerous ways and start to look at simple linear equations. They describe the slope in a variety of ways such as the steepness of a line, developing a ratio, using graphs, using similar...

New Review Predicting the Future with Best-fit Lines
What career will actually use this math? The activity has pupils determine a best-fit line for given data. Using their best-fit line, they then make predictions before discussing as a class what careers might use scatter plots and...

Proofs into Practice: The Pythagorean Theorem in the Real World
As an introduction to the lesson, learners verify the Pythagorean theorem with a hands-on proof. Then, pupils use the theorem to determine whether three side lengths could form a right triangle and choose one of two real-life situations...
