### Description

Using properties and theorems for parallel lines cut by a transversal, students write and solve systems of equations to determine angle measures.

The goal is to figure out the slight slant of each set of ledges in order to determine which way the ball will roll. Students have to figure out where the ball will end up. This activity combines Geometry skills, Algebra skills, and Critical Thinking skills.

There are 2 versions of the worksheet for easy differentiation. You can use both on different days, choose one, or use some of each to differentiate by ability.

Check out the preview file for more detail and a sample of the steps required to solve.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.
