Special Angles formed by Parallel Lines

Published on 08/03/2009

Activity Overview

This activity will help students see the relationship among the angles formed by two parallel lines and the transversal cuts through the lines.

Before the Activity

Students should know the basics of using TI-Nspire technology. The lesson is designed to let the student discover the relationship among the angles.

During the Activity

Distribute the TI-Nspire document (TNS file) to your students and act as the facilitator as students discover the angle relationships.

After the Activity

Students will discuss their results and state the theorems from their discoveries. As a follow up, students should be able to answer questions using the results of their discoveries.
