CHALLENGES IN UNDERSTANDING PROPERTIES OF ANGLES:
When concept of angle is introduced to students, they face difficulty in conceiving the angle of 0how to read and measure the angles, their properties and parts. Some of the confusing points are as below: –
- How to measure angles in different situations
- How different types of angles are formed by transversal line
- How to relate opposite of angles.
WHY ANGLE FORMATION KIT?
While doing activities with Angle formation kit student understand what is being measured by fitting the two strips or rays with protractor using the fly screw and then rotating the one ray above another ray through a common point. In the process of rotating the strips, student observe that how angle is formed at common end point and discover how to read the measurement of angle through the protractor. In order to determine how different types of angles are formed by transversal line, two strips as parallel lines are taken. In the next step they are cut by another strips as transversal. Now with help of the protractor measure the angles which are formed at exterior or interior of the transversal lines. Understanding becomes easy.
