Parallel Lines & Transversals - Special Angle Pairs:
This lesson introduces corresponding angles, alternate interior angles, alternate exterior angles, same-side interior angles, and same-side exterior angles. It starts with an investigation activity in which students discover properties of corresponding angles. Students learn about angle relationships that occur when a transversal is cut by parallel lines.
Here's what's included:
- Inquiry-based activity for discovering properties of corresponding angles (protractor & patty paper, tracing paper, or tissue paper required)
- A short presentation
- Practice with angles along a transversal
- 2 Warm-ups
- Critical Thinking worksheet
- Algebra Applications worksheet
- Half-sheet Organizers for recording theorems & postulates (can be assembled into a booklet/study guide)
- Answer Keys
Please take a look at the preview file for more information. Be sure that the problems are appropriate for your students. Critical thinking questions and algebra applications are included.
