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 to the activity or a summarization for students to complete or answer
