Lesson 1: Types of Angles (p. 4) - The first lesson teaches about the three main types of angles: right angles, acute angles, and obtuse angles.
Lesson 2: Measuring Angles (p. 11) - This lesson teaches two different ways to measure angles, including using a protractor (a cut-out protractor is included!) and using the measurements of adjacent angles.
Lesson 3: Introduction to Triangles (p.20) - In this lesson, your children will learn about six different kinds of triangles - equilateral, isosceles, scalene, acute-angled, right-angled, and obtuse-angled triangles. They will also learn about the symbols used to identify equal lines and angles.
Lesson 4: Measuring Triangles (p. 28) - This lesson focuses on measuring angles in a triangle using other angles in the same triangle, adjacent angles in a figure, and, of course, a protractor.
Lesson 5: Area of Triangles (p. 34) - In this final lesson of the unit, your children will learn how to calculate the area of triangles using the standard formula for area.
Answer Keys (p. 38) - Answers for the practice sections from each lesson are included in this section, divided by lesson.
Glossary (p. 43) - All of the key terms from the unit are included in the glossary so your child can look them up, as needed.
Online Resources (p. 44) -Would you like more resources for teaching your children about angles and triangles? This page has just what you need.
Free Block (p. 45) - You can print this page as many times as you'd like on cover or card stock paper, then your child can do some real building with Minecraft™-like blocks!
Notebooking pages (p. 46) - Several notebooking pages are included, along with some ideas for integrating writing with this unit.
