In this concept-developing discovery worksheet, students will explore how to find missing angle measures of supplementary, complementary, and vertical angles. Exercises work from concrete to abstract, ultimately requiring equation writing and solving. Equations involve combining like terms. This activity is appropriate for advanced seventh graders or makes a great review for higher levels.
Throughout the activity, students collaborate in pairs with a "partner chat." This is an opportunity for students to check in with one another. I find this very effective when using a guided approach and giving students 30 seconds to talk with their partner. It will keep their brains stimulated and reinforce key concepts.
Then students practice these skills with task cards. The task cards have been differentiated by ability. Various levels are denoted with a small symbol in the corner of each card.
Advanced Practice – (4 cards) Perfect challenge for your highest flyers! Requires solving equations with the variable on each side.
Challenging Practice – (14 cards) Appropriate challenge for the majority of students. May require combining like terms when solving equations.
Basic Practice – (6 cards) Great option for students requiring practice without solving equations.
