Sums of Angles Activity

Data Collection by Construction
Sums of Angles


Teachers Notes: Rationale/Level for Lesson
The Notes for this activity have not yet been posted.
Objective:
The purpose of this activiy is to have students determine the formula for the sums of angles of an "n-sided" polygon. Students will collect the data through a construction activity and then tabulate the results and determine the equation which best represents the data.

The construction will be described both 1) using a protractor and straightedge and 2) using dynamic geometry software.

Background:
This will describe the background for doing this activity

Problem Statement:
I will write the description of the problem here.

Follow Up:
Follow up to the activity or a summarization for students to complete or answer
