Tomorrow's Quiz

What you need to know:


Line Segment:  A line segment is a part of a line with two endpoints.  It's part of a line.

Ray:  A ray has a starting point, but then continues forever.  Think of a flashlight beam.

Line:  A line continues forever in both directions.  It has no starting or ending point.


Intersecting:  Lines that cross.

Perpendicular:  Lines that meet at a 90 degree angle.  A right angle is perpendicular.

Parallel:  Two lines that remain the same distance apart at all times and never cross.


Acute Angle:  A small angle measuring less than 90 degrees.

Right Angle:  An angle measuring 90 degrees.

Obtuse Angle:  A wide angle measuring more than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees.

Straight Angle:  An angle measuring 180 degrees.

Estimating Angles:  Give a general estimate of an angle's measure.  These will be multiple choice on the quiz.

Complementary Angles: Complementary Angles add up to 90 degrees.  Remember, "It's always RIGHT to give a Compliment!"

Supplementary Angles:  Supplementary Angles add up to 180 degrees.  Remember, "Sssssssssssupplemenary is Sssssssssssstraight!"

Coordinate Planes:  Coordinates are written with the X value first and the Y value second.  (X,Y)  Move left to right first and up and down second.

Games to help you practice:

Estimating angles:

Point the telescope at a planet.

Fruit picker, a bit more challenging.

Ninja Angles  This one kicks butt.  Literally!!!

Banana Hunt  

Now chuck those bananas!

More angle games to check out.

Coordinate Planes:

Drive around the desert to find buried treasure.

Identify points on the graph.

Ride your bike around a neighborhood. 

More coordinate plane games to help you practice.

The other topics are easier to do on your own.  For example identifying lines, angles and relationships should be pretty straightforward and finding complements and supplements are just about subtracting.  go over your old notes and previous blog posts to help you!

I hope that these help you study by practicing!!!!

Good Luck tomorrow!  I will see you on Wednesday!
