Task:

An angle can be defined as two rays or two line segments having a common end point. The endpoint becomes known as the vertex. An angle occurs when two rays meet or unite at the same endpoint.











1. How may degrees are there in one full turn?
2. Imagine you are facing North. You turn clockwise through 90 degrees. Which direction are you facing now?
3. Imagine the capital letter M. What letter does it look like when it's rotated 180 degrees?
4. An angle less than 90 degrees is known as ...
5. An angle between 90 degrees and 180 degrees is known as ...
6. If two of the angles inside a triangle are 90 degrees and 50 degrees, what is the third angle? What angle property/properties did you use in you reasoning?
7. Are the lines in the capital letter L parallel or perpendicular?
8. Will two parallel lines ever cross? Why?

  2. 1) 360 degrees
    2) East
    3) W
    4) Acute angle
    5) Obtuse angle
    6) 40 degrees. All angles within a triangle add up to 180 degrees in total.
    7) Perpendicular
    8) No they will not as the distance between them never changes.

  4. 1. How many degrees are there in one full turn?

    - 360 degrees

    2. Imagine you're facing North. You turn clockwise through 90 degrees.
    Which direction are you facing now?

    - East

    3. Imagine the capital letter M. What letter does it look like when it's rotated 180 degrees?

    - W

    4. An angle less than 90 degrees is known as ...

    - Acute angle

    5. An angle between 90 degrees and 180 degrees is known as ...

    - Obtuse angle

    6. If two of the angles inside a triangle are 90 degrees and 50 degrees, what is the third angle? What angle property/properties did you use in you reasoning?

    - 40 degrees

    7. Are the lines in the capital letter L parallel or perpendicular?

    - Perpendicular

    8. Will two parallel lines ever cross? Why?

    They will never cross, as they are both straight lines that are 180 degrees. Therefore, no matter how far they go, they will never cross

    6) 40º The angles in a triangle add up to 180º

    2) East
    3) W
    4) Acute
    5) Obtuse
    6) 40. The total angle of a triangle is 180, so if one is 90 and another is 50, the last angle has to be 40.
    7)Perpendicular
    8)No. Parallel lines are lines that will always have the same distance between them. Thus they will never meet.

  11. 1. How may degrees are there in one full turn? 360º

    2. Imagine you are facing North. You turn clockwise through 90 degrees. Which direction are you facing now? East

    3. Imagine the capital letter M. What letter does it look like when it's rotated 180 degrees? W

    4. An angle less than 90 degrees is known as ... Acute Angle

    5. An angle between 90 degrees and 180 degrees is known as ... Obtuse angle

    6. If two of the angles inside a triangle are 90 degrees and 50 degrees, what is the third angle? What angle property/properties did you use in you reasoning? 40º. All the angles in the triangle add up to 180º. Therefore, 180º - 90º - 50º = 40º.

    7. Are the lines in the capital letter L parallel or perpendicular? Perpendicular.

    8. Will two parallel lines ever cross? Why? No, because the distance between these two parallel lines will forever be the same, therefore, the distance between these two parallel lines would not decrease, so they would not cross each other.

    3. W.

    4.An acute angle

    5. An obtuse angle

    6. It is an acute angle, as it has a value of 40 degrees, which is between 0 to 90 degrees.

    7.Perpendicular

    8.No, as they share the same gradient and thus will never cross each other.

  14. How many degrees are there in one full turn?
    - 360º

    Imagine you're facing North. You turn clockwise through 90 degrees. Which direction are you facing now?
    - East

    Imagine the capital letter M. What letter does it look like when it's rotated 180 degrees?
    - W

    An angle less than 90 degrees is known as …
    - Acute angle

    An angle between 90 degrees and 180 degrees is known as …
    - Obtuse angle

    If two of the angles inside a triangle are 90 degrees and 50 degrees, what is the third angle? What angle property/properties did you use in you reasoning?
    - 40º. The property of the triangle. The total of all the angles in a triangle must be 180º, 180º-90º-50º=40º

    Are the lines in the capital letter L parallel or perpendicular?
    - Perpendicular

    Will two parallel lines ever cross? Why?
    No they won’t. The distance between parallel lines must always be the same.

  15. 1) 360 degrees
    2) East
    3) W
    4) Acute angle
    5) Obtuse angle
    6) 40 degrees. All 3 angles in a triangle adds up to 180 degrees, hence if the two angles given adds up to 140 degrees, the last angle MUST be 40 degrees to allow it to add up to 180 degrees..
    7) Perpendicular
    8) No. This is because parallel lines are straight and because they have similar angles, they will NEVER meet.

    6. If two of the angles inside a triangle are 90 degrees and 50 degrees, what is the third angle? What angle property/properties did you use in you reasoning?
    180-90-50= 40 degrees
    I used the property that a triangle always has internal angles that add up to 180 degrees.

    7. Are the lines in the capital letter L parallel or perpendicular?
