Investigate conditions for two lines to be parallel and solve simple numerical problems using reasoning (ACMMG164)
This web-based, multimedia resource focuses on the geometry of the Stage 4 and Stage 5 Mathematics syllabus. It comprises 70 dynamic html worksheets, each exploring a different outcome in Stage 4 and Stage 5 geometry.
This is a website designed for both teachers and students that addresses geometry from the Australian Curriculum for year 9 students. It contains material on geometry and includes information regarding parallel lines and the angle sum of triangles. There are pages for both teachers and students. The student pages contain ...
Interactive activities that guide students to explore angles in parallel lines.
This sequence of lessons explores the geometry of angles using real world contexts including the dynamics of folding and joints. Students investigate side lengths and angles, supported by using physical models and computer simulation. There are opportunities to develop geometric language and to highlight how mathematical ...
This animated presentation includes three different techniques for the geometrical construction of parallel lines. The presentation, with optional audio commentary, provides a step-by-step set of instructions involving rulers, set squares and compasses.
This is a 30-page guide for teachers that explains the central role of construction and presents examples of constructions.
Explore angles formed by a transversal line intersecting parallel lines. Look at illustrations showing pairs of angles: vertically opposite, corresponding and alternate angles. Name pairs of angles to score points and help a monkey drive to the supermarket to buy food.
This curriculum resource package is a ten-week middle years teaching plan and set of supporting resources to extend students' understanding of geometrical language and spatial relationships. Students use concrete materials and interactive geometry software packages to compare and describe geometrical attributes and investigate ...
These seven learning activities, which focus on 'representations' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning. In the activities, teachers use different representations ...
