*TITLE: Polygons by Tennille Rushin
Students will learn the names for different sided polygons and then make conjectures about the relationship between the number of sides and the sum of the angles.
For students to understand the relationship between the number of sides and the sum of the angles in a polygon.
Additional Learning Outcomes:
Students will need to learn names of polygons and discover characteristics of polygons. Questions asked to students: What do all polygons have in common? What type of angles make up each polygon? Do you see a relationship between the number of sides and the sum of the angles?
QCC 13: Angle components, Angle types
Standard-Identifies the component parts of an angle, its vertex, and sides or rays; and classifies angles as acute, right, obtuse or straight.
One class period: 50 minutes
The student will be graded on their conjecture as well as their polygon drawings.
Students can find the lines of symmetry in the polygons they created and compare their figures to regular polygons.
Students will practice using a protractor and measuring angles. They will classify the angle and then find its exact measure.
