What’s in the Year 7 Angles book for Students?
Geometric angles are formed when two lines (rays) intersect at a common point called the vertex with the lines making up the sides of the angle. The use of these angles can be traced as far back as the ancient Babylonians (4,000-300 BC) who used it for construction and astronomy. But it was the Greeks who were able to develop angles even further in calculating the circumference of the Earth and the distance to the Moon.
Today, it seems that everywhere we look, there are angles of different sizes. The most common of these being the right angle that measures 90 degrees or ¼ of a circle. Knowing that and being able to estimate the size of an angle is not difficult however, being able to calculate the size of an angle can prove a very useful tool.
Students will learn the difference between the angles adjacent, supplementary and vertically opposite while also, learning the many applications whereby angle calculations are relied upon. Engineers and Architects use angles for designs, roads, buildings and even sporting facilities. Athletes use angles to enhance their performance. Carpenters use angles to make chairs, tables and sofas and Artists use their knowledge of angles to sketch portraits and paintings.
About year 7 Angles
“Repetition is the mother of all skills”
Well, in this workbook, there is plenty of that after firstly, getting to know and familiarize yourself with the different types of angles and their names.
Math Problems and Solutions
The answers are included in the workbook and immediately following the questions that have been set out. Care is taken to ensure that the problems faced in each session will provide the student with questions that will challenge their thinking yet increase their level of geometry confidence.
