Students discover the properties of interior, corresponding and alternate angles in parallel lines. As learning progresses they are challenged to prove each property using algebraic and geometrical notation. Later, students use interior and exterior angles of polygons to solve complex problems.
This topic takes place in Term 1 of Year 8 and follows on from Basic Angle Properties which students learned in Year 7.
Students are challenged to apply their understanding of the mean, mode, median and range to calculate datasets by setting up and solving equations.
