Launch

5 minutes
  • POD

As students enter the room, they will have a seat, take out their Problem of the Day (POD) sheet and begin to work on the question on the SMARTboard. The POD allows students to use MP 3 continually based on the discussions we have about the problem each day.

The POD today will be a review of the meanings of the vocabulary we have learned during the unit. I want students to recall what they know as they prepare to solve the Write It Wednesday question today since it draws on their knowledge of supplementary angles and vertical angles.

What is the difference between vertical and adjacent angles?
