Angry Bird Angles

Posted by MissFelmingham | Posted in Angles | Posted on August 30, 2016

Students create their own Angry Birds Course by using a ruler to draw different ‘scenes’. You may need to show some students what Angry Birds is and how to play, there are some good demonstrations on YouTube or you can quickly play a game on the IWB. Once students have completed their course, they then need to highlight or identify all of the angles located in their course.

This task can be differentiated by asking students to locate and label;

• Quarter turns and half turns
• Right angles and angles that are smaller or larger than a right angle
• Right, acute, obtuse, reflex and straight angles
• Use a protractor to measure the degrees in each of their angles and label next to the name

Bike Ride using Cartesian Plane

Have students map out a bike ride that goes for a specific distance (e.g. – 5km).

• Listing coordinates of intersections and landmarks
• Writing directions
• Calculating the time it would take to complete the bike ride, allowing for walking across roads
• Investigating height of terrain to see vertical meters covered
• Measure the angle of turns made

Challenges could also be made as to how much distance is covered in a particular quadrant.

Students use grid paper to create their own golf course. It can be linked to a variety of different math outcomes, including area and perimeter, shapes, angles, fractions, decimals and percentages.

Angles in the environment

Posted by lisar | Posted in Angles | Posted on October 28, 2014

Students can use ipads, ipods or other devices to take photos of angles in their environment. Apps such as Doodle Buddy can be used which allows students to highlight the angle using the drawing tools. They could also write in the name of the angle and add their name or initials. We have students airdrop these photos to the teacher ipad for evidence and assessment.

Picture Angles

Students use 2D attribute shape blocks to create a picture or students design their own picture. Angle activities could involve:

1. Using a highlighter to identify where their are angles.

2. Compare the size of different angles and label.

3. Label and name the angles.

4. Measure the angles using a protractor and label with the angles name and degrees.

6. Add angles around a point to your picture, measure and label to ensure it adds to 360 degrees.

Matchstick Angles

Using pop sticks or match sticks, students can create angles. Differentiate this activity by:

1. Students compare the size of he angle.

2. Create half and full turns and label.

3. Compare each angle to a right angle and label. eg. larger than a right angle.

4. Identify, name and label the angles.

5. Measure the angles with a protractor, record the degrees and label.
