An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the alternate interior angles that are formed where a transversal crosses two lines. The applets shows the two possible pairs of angles alternating when in animation mode. By dragging the three lines, it can be seen that the angles are congruent only when the lines are parallel. When not in animated mode, there is a button that alternates the two pairs of angles. The text on the page discusses the properties of the angle pairs both in the parallel and non-parallel cases. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.

In this lesson, students know an informal proof of the Angle-Angle (AA) criterion for similar triangles. Students present informal arguments as to whether or not triangles are similar based on Angle-Angle criterion.

In this lesson, students know the Angle Sum Theorem for triangles; the …

In this lesson, students know the Angle Sum Theorem for triangles; the sum of the interior angles of a triangle is always 180 degrees. Students present informal arguments to draw conclusions about the angle sum of a triangle.

The students will be split into small, cooperative groups and build a city following specific guidelines. The students will learn how a city is constructed with angles, intersections, parallel, intersecting, and transversal streets. They will understand that buildings are located at particular points which are considered alternate interior or exterior angles, corresponding angles, etc.

In this lesson, students present informal arguments as to whether or not …

In this lesson, students present informal arguments as to whether or not two triangles are similar. Students practice finding lengths of corresponding sides of similar triangles.

For this interactive, students explore vertically opposite, corresponding, and alternate angles formed …

For this interactive, students explore vertically opposite, corresponding, and alternate angles formed by parallel lines and a transversal. The resource also includes print activities, solutions, learning strategies, and a math game.

This task "Uses facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in …

This task "Uses facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in a multi-step problem to write and solve simple equations for an unknown angle in a figure (7.G.5)" except that it requires students to know, in addition, something about parallel lines, which students will not see until 8th grade.

This is a set of four, one-page problems about the distance craft …

This is a set of four, one-page problems about the distance craft travel on Mars. Learners will use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine distance between a series of hypothetical exploration sites within Gale Crater on Mars. Options are presented so that students may learn about the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission through a NASA press release or by viewing a NASA eClips video [6 min.]. This activity is part of the Space Math multi-media modules that integrate NASA press releases, NASA archival video, and mathematics problems targeted at specific math standards commonly encountered in middle school.
