This year I am teaching a study skills class for the first time. All of my students in the class are sophomores, which means they are all taking geometry. They're all currently learning about parallel lines cut by a transversal, so I made them a visual reference to color code:

*Coming back to update:*since originally writing this post, I added a digital version in Google Slides. The angles in the digital version are drag-and-drop, so it can be used as a teaching tool or for student practice:

The file now includes printable color, printable black and white and digital in Google Slides.

Here is one of the black and white versions with patterns on the angles for colorblind students or to work as a quick printable without needing to color:

You can find the

I love using task cards as a way to summarize learning. This set of parallel lines cut by a transversal task cards activity covers all the angle pairs. Students are asked to name angle pairs, name the relationship between angles, solve for x, and find angle measures.

Another fun way to sum up a unit on parallel line angle pairs is with a pennant activity. This parallel lines cut by a transversal math pennant can be used as a fun activity, assessment, warm up or exit slip (each student gets one), homework, or even as sub work. Finished student work doubles as math classroom décor.

Thank you for sharing! I plan to use these for our geometry angles unit. I think the colors and symbols will especially help my special-needs students! I have 2 co-taught classes and am always looking for ways to help them gain confidence with new skills!

I'm so happy you can use it! I teach Special Ed too and my kids really like visuals. I hope you have a great week!

ReplyDeleteThe Parallel Lines-Transversal coloring page!!! OMG!! I have done this lesson for years where I have the kids create their own, to VERY mixed results!! (Some turn out beautifully; some are a true mess! Ugh!) Can't wait to use this with my class this year! Thanks SO much for your cool creativity!! (Wish I had time to create more... maybe next year - LOL!)

ReplyDeleteOh yay Karen! I'm glad you found this one and I hope it helps! :)

DeleteThank you so much.

ReplyDeleteYou’re very welcome! :)

DeleteThank you! We just started a unit in Congruence and Similarity. The poster will be very helpful.

ReplyDeleteWhere can I find the task cards you mention?

Wow, I guess I just never linked those! I'm so sorry about that! They are in my tpt store. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Parallel-Lines-Transversals-and-Angles-Task-Cards-Activity-1171182

DeleteMy teacher thinks this is great and so do i thank you

ReplyDeleteI hope you are having a good year, even though it is super hard. Thank you so much for coming here to leave a comment.

DeleteIs there a answer key to this? Or do I do it my self? (No-offense)

ReplyDeleteThe static poster can be used as a key.

DeleteI appreciate the patterned image, especially as an accommodation for color blind students.
