EOC: Are they Special Angles?

Published on 07/09/2013

Activity Overview

Students will use the dynamic geometry tool on the TI-Nspire to validate conclusions about special angle relationships with parallel lines cut by a transversal.

Before the Activity

See the attached activity PDF file(s) for detailed instructions for this activity.

During the Activity

Follow the procedures outlined in the Teachers Notes. Students will:

  • Be able to validate conclusions using mathematical properties and relationships.  They will be able to make conjectures about special angle relationships created with parallel lines cut by transversals.

After the Activity

Review student answers:

  • As a class, discuss questions that arise during the activity
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
