Transversal Angle Pairs Overview

Setup

- Find the definition of transversal in your special notebook. - You should have a special notebook entry for Transversal Angle Pairs that looks something like the image above. It should go up front after the Corresponding Angles Theorems. - When a transversal intersects 2 other lines, we give names to certain pairs of angles because they are special! Our goal is to figure out what the names mean and how to identify the different types of angle relationships. This will help you reason and draw diagrams. - Could you draw a diagram and analyze the Consecutive Interior Angles relationship? After this activity, you'll be able to!

Transversal Angle Pairs Applet

Above is an applet for doing geometry. An applet is just a simple app. Interact (play around) with the applet for a minute or two.  Drag various lines around and click checkboxes until you understand how to use the applet efficiently. You will be figuring out what all the angle pairs are and what their names mean, then you will record that information in your daily notebook. In your daily notebook make a table for identifying each Angle Pair Type from the applet with a type of angle from your Transversal Angle Pair special notebook entry.
