Intersecting Angles and Streets
Students explore the properties of angles, search city maps for intersecting streets, and then design their own street intersection.
- Explore how a lone angle creates a second angle. And the two angles always add up to 360º.
- Explore how 2, 4, 6, or even 8 intersecting angles still add up to 360º.
- Browse online city maps (Google Maps, Open Street Maps, etc) to find an interesting intersection of streets. Measure these angles and check that they also add up to 360º.
- Create their own intersection of streets. They'll label the street names, mark interesting sights, and measure each angle, ensuring that they add up to 360º.
