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 structures such as points, lines and angles can be seen in real objects, linking geometry diagrams with real things. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, sample answers, discussion points and student resources such as links for simulations online. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry special topic 'Mechanical Linkages and Deductive Geometry'.
