In this lesson, students are up and out of their seats in an engaging problem solving strategy. Students deepen their understanding about angles as they talk with peers about various strategies to determine angle measurements.
In this partner work lesson, student work with pattern blocks and their creativity to design a shape pattern that has at least one line of symmetry. Students also find the fractional value of each shape and calculate in order to calculate the total value
In this hands on engaging lesson, students use clay to make a miniature golf model all while deepening their understanding of creating angles. They then use their skills to draw angles using a protractor.
An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays, by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through 1/360 of a circle is called a “one-degree angle,” and can be used to measure angles.
