Create a pair of parallel lines cut by a transversal and investigate the relationships among the angles that are created.
- Students will explore the angles formed when parallel lines are cut by a transversal by moving points F and D.
- Students will use informal arguments to establish facts about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal.
- linear pair
- corresponding angles
About the Lesson
This activity is designed to be student-centered, with the teacher acting as a facilitator while students work cooperatively. The time varies for this activity depending on whether the TI-Nspire document (.tns file) is provided or created from scratch by the students.
