Lesson Objective

SWBAT discover the sum of angles in any polygon using the triangle method. SWBAT use the sum of angles in a polygon to determine the missing angle.

Lesson Plan

Element/Time

Lesson Steps

Do Now

(8:30 – 8:40)/(10:00 –10:10) 

·         T displays 4 review problems

·         S complete problems independently on do now sheet

·         T walks around to check hw/help students with do now questions

·         T/S review problems together

·         S correct their work to reflect the correct answers

HW Check

·         T displays correct answers and work

·         S correct work with colored pencil  T walks around to review specific students work

·         T/S review 3 questions 

Mini Lesson

(8:50 – 9:25)/(10:20 – 10:55)

·         Review key idea from previous day – triangles equal 180°

·         Tell students that using just that information we can find the sum of angles in any polygon

·         T demonstrates using the triangle method to find the sum of angles in any polygon but splitting the polygon into triangles and then multiplying the number of triangles by 180.

·         T and S will practice first dividing polygons into triangles

·         S will practice working to find the sum of angles within different polygons. 

·         T and S will conclude at the end of class that any quad will have 360, pentagon will have

Skills Time

(9:35- 9:50) /(11:05-11:25)

·         See if we can figure out a rule (using algebra) to find out the sum of angles in any polygon. 

 

Sum = 180 (n – 2)
