This card sort is perfect for differentiating your instruction while practicing multiple levels of problems with transversals and angle pairs!
Don't have enough time for the card sort? You can use this as a worksheet to provide angle pair identification practice!
This card sort file contains:
— 34 Diagrams (some sets of lines are parallel, some are not)
— 11 Category Cards (angle pair names, supplementary, congruent, etc.)
There are so many ways to use these cards! See below for a brief description of how I used it with my kids during our station review day.
Prep: Print card sort file on colored cardstock. Cut cards. Sort out title cards and keep separate to be introduced by teacher.
Procedure: I first had my students do an initial sort with only diagrams. I then asked them if there were certain category cards that would be helpful and provided them with those. For most, these were the angle pair titles (alt. int., ss ext, etc.). There are a few diagrams that do not fit into any of those categories so students were asking if I had other categories they could use such as supplementary, congruent, neither. Once those title cards came out, I questioned students as to whether or not they could take any of the diagrams from their angle pair categories and place them under the supplementary and congruent titles (diagrams with parallel lines defined). I also have cards with equations set up so students have to determine if the structure is to set the angles equal or add them to 180.
