We are moving along in finishing up geometry. Yesterday we covered estimating an angle's measurement based on baseline angles. In other words, once students know what a 45°, a 90°, and a 135° angle roughly looks like, they can use it as a guide.
Students also learned about estimating the measure of an angle using a clock. Since all circles measure 360° and clocks are divided into twelfths, each number on the clock represents 30°.
I did show a brief video to reinforce what was taught.
My second block was introduced to using protractors to both measure an angle as well as create one. The activity that the students participated in involved using ten-sided dice to randomly generate a number for the degrees of an angle that they were to draw.
