I used this as a small groups / math centers. Students will need to work in a group of two. Students really enjoyed this math center. Besure to buy bright colored paper plates, You can find at discount stores. Great Hands on Math Center idea.
Materials needed: a pair of dice, a set of two colored interlocking paper plates, a protractor, and a recording sheet.
Your task is to:
• Work with a partner, determine who is Player A and who is Player B.
• Player A, rolls a pair of dice, this will determine the first angle in degrees, for ex. If you roll a 4 and a 2 you can say this is either 42˚ or 24˚. Record this on the recording sheet.
• Player B, then uses the interlocking paper plates and twists them until they reach either the supplement or complement of the first generated angle. Use your protractor to measure the angle for accuracy. Record this angle measure on the recording sheet. Sketch and label the pair of complementary or supplementary angles.
• Alternate rolls as you move through the activity.
Turn in your recording sheet when done.
