"I wrote this activity for a friend's daughter who was struggling to see the angle relationships in her school homework. I presented it to her as this selfchecking digital version because if she tried the more traditional paper versions she would not get the immediate feedback the computer provides.
We did level one together. She typed in the answers in the web browser but had a laminated copy of the printed version in front of her to draw on (Great for seeing the Z shapes).
After Level 1, she was feeling more confident so we played Level 2 as a game, taking it in turns to figure out one of the angles. She was most confident with vertically opposite angles and angles in triangles. A blank sheet of paper to hide the unnecessary part of the diagram helped her spot the angles together on a straight line. At one point, using her own initiative, I found her looking in her school exercise book to remind herself about angles in quadrilaterals and pentagons.
This was one of those great teacher moments when you can see the understanding taking shape and the pride the student demonstrates when solving mathematical problems.
I hope this activity works as well for you. "

"Why are the corner angles 90? I can't see it.
[Transum: Very good question Shirley. You can't assume angles are exactly 90° just because they look like right angles. The clue here is in the text at the top of the page which says that the diagram is drawn inside a rectangle and the angles of a rectangle are 90°.]"

"Hi John,
We're so stuck on #4. Any hints?
Cheers, Rebecca.
[Transum: Glad to hear that you are having fun with Angle Chase. There is a circle involved so your clue is to have a look at Circle Theorems. Good luck, John]"

"Year 7 have been solving geometry problems this week.
Zac took about 2 hours to complete this one because he had to learn about circle theorems and parallel lines.
Independent study leads to some amazing learning."
