Wednesday March 22

Today we reviewed the seven types of angles, the acute angle, reflex angle, complementary angle, supplementary,straight angle, and the right angle. When we reviewed the angles Mr. Reese selected a few students to name all of the seven angles.
April went to the board and drew a polygon and Mr. Reese chose people to go to the board and add the angles inside of the polygon.

We also reviewed triangles and that if you do not have three lines it will not be a polygon and if you do have three lines they need to be connected to make a polygon, same goes for all the other shapes, but all polygons have an angle. If it does not it would be a circle or another shape that does not have any any angles inside of it. All sides on a triangle must equal to a total of 180 degrees.

Mr. Reese also drew two triangles on the smart board and connected them making a square. A square equals the total of 360 degrees, so if you add the two triangles together 180+180 degrees= 360 degrees.


In class today we also cut out triangles on a paper and tomorrow we will put them together and make shapes. We will later we will find the total for the shapes that we make. MAKE SURE YOU BRING YOUR TRIANGLES THAT YOU CUT OUT TOMMOROW!

Tomorrow we also have a quiz on the seven angles
TOMMOROW!

Tommorow we also have a quiz on the seven angles
the: right, straight, complimentary, reflex, acute, obtuse, and supplementary angles.

I choose Shelina as the scribe for tomorrow!

Scribe Notes For March 21

Today we did a web on triangles.

We discusseed as a class what the three things to make a were. They were: 1. A triangle has three sides, 2. A triangle has three angles, 3. A triangle's angles equal a total of 180 degrees, a straight angle.

As a class, we tried to prove that a triangle's corners put together will equal 180 degrees. A table each got two pieces of paper. We cut the paper into two halves. We cut the triangle into different triangles, but different to the people in your group. We then riped the corners off and put them together. If the corners made a straight line, the theory was right. Everyone had a straight line.

After that we looked at regular and irregular polygon. A regular polygon is a shape that all sides and all angles of the polygon were equal, the polygon is said to be regular. An irregular polygon is a shape that have sides of differing lengths and angles of differing measures.

Then we took out a peice of paper and a pencil. We watched a clip about triangles on www.brainpops.com. Once the clip was done we did a quiz that reveiwed the clip.


Today's is: Worksheet 10.6 due Wednesday.


Tommorrow's Scribe is : Lauren

TL


The TLE lesson Classifying Angles is Due Friday by 12pm. If you have not yet finished this TLE Lesson remember that the computers in my room are open for use before and after school.

This does not include the TLE worksheet, only the computer portion for Angles. My appologies for any confusion


Mr. R

Here are some Riddles

What letter of the alphabet creates good or evil?

What letter of the alphabet signifies pleasures?

What letter of the alphabet can be hot,cold,warm or frozen?


Homework

Yeah I'm DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mr. Reece

Hello This Is Today's Scribe



Today we learned about the angles for geometric shapes. A hexaogn has two angles they are an obtuse and a reflex angle. The reason why the hexagon is not under as a reflex angle because we only measure the inside of the shape.

Today we also looked at Polygons and how they are a polygon. There are four steps and here they are:1. it has to have three or more sides, 2. it has to have three or more angles, 3. all the lines have to be straight and 4. it has to be a closed figure.

The next scribe will be Kendra
