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.
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.

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
