Parallel Lines & Related Angles Activity
In this activity, you will explore the different angle relationships formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal. In the applet below, the dashed brown line is a transversal that intersects 2 parallel lines. Take a few minutes to explore the special relationships among the various types of angle pairs formed when a transversal intersects PARALLEL LINES, by following the steps below: STEPS: 1. DRAG the green points around to change the red and/or blue angle measures that appear. 2. BE SURE TO CLICK ON EACH BOX TO DETERMINE EACH RELATIONSHIP. MAKE NOTE OF EACH RELATIONSHIP.
