unit one exploring angles
Unit One: Exploring Angles

Can you name the following angles?

obtuse

acute

right

straight

Click on the angle to reveal its name.

angle information
Angle Information
  • Acute Angles – measure less than 90º
  • Right Angles – measure exactly 90º
  • Obtuse Angles – measure more than 90º but less than 180º
  • Straight Angles – measure exactly 180º
angles task
Angles Task

Activity

  • For this activity, you will be paired up with a partner to visit the following website.
  • After clicking below, skip the intro and click on the Make the Angle Game.
  • You and your partner must make 10 angles and record them on a sheet of paper.
  • Once you have recorded 10 angles, tell what type of angle it is.

Congratulations!!!!

A right angle does measure exactly 90º.

unit two triangles
Unit Two : Triangles

Can you identify theses triangles by their angles?

Right

acute

obtuse

Click on the angle to check your answer.

unit two triangles20
Unit Two: Triangles
  • Right Triangles - have exactly one right angle.
  • Acute Triangles – all angles are less than 90º.
  • Obtuse Triangles - have exactly one angle greater than 90º.
unit two triangles21
Unit Two: Triangles

Can you identify these triangles by their sides?

isosceles

scalene

equilateral

Click on the triangle to check your answer.

unit two triangles22
Unit Two: Triangles
  • Isosceles Triangles - two sides are of equal length
  • Scalene Triangles - no sides are equal in length
  • Equilateral Triangles - all sides are of equal length
triangles task
Triangles Task
  • For this task, you and your partner, must complete the activity on the webpage listed below. Review the triangles and then click Triangles Quiz. Write your answers on a sheet of paper.

unit three quadrilaterals
Unit Three: Quadrilaterals

Can you identify the following quadrilaterals?

parallelogram

rectangle

square

trapezoid

rhombus

Click on the quadrilateral to check your answer.

unit three quadrilaterals25
Unit Three: Quadrilaterals
  • Parallelograms - 4-sided figure, opposite sides are parallel and congruent
  • Rectangle – 4 sided figure with 4 right angles and opposite side congruent
  • Square – 4 sided figure with 4 right angles and 4 congruent sides
  • Rhombus – 4 sided figure, all sides are congruent
  • Trapezoid – 4 sided figure with one pair of parallel lines
quadrilaterals task
Quadrilaterals Task
  • For this task, you and your partner should visit the following website.
  • Using the virtual geoboard you and your partner will need to construct each of the five quadrilaterals we have discussed.
  • To complete the assignment, on a sheet of paper, tell how many geobands were needed to create each quadrilateral.
