GRADE: 8

CURRICULUM AREA(S): Mathematics, Science

- determine, through investigation using a variety of tools and strategies, the angle relationships for intersecting lines and for parallel lines and transversals, and the sum of the angles of a triangle

- solve angle-relationship problems involving triangles, intersecting lines, and parallel lines and transversals

- graph the image of a point, or set of points, on the Cartesian coordinate plane after applying a transformation to the original point(s)

**Science and Technology: Understanding Structures and Mechanisms**

- 3.2 Identify the purpose, inputs, and outputs of various systems

Basic Scratch menus

These lessons provide opportunities for teachers and students to gather evidence through teacher, peer, and self-assessments; and learning goals and success criteria. See *Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting in Ontario Schools, Chapter 4* for more information.

Scratch

Parallel, Perpendicular, and Intersecting

Complementary, Supplementary, and Vertical Angles

Co-create a list of all the angle terms learned (parallel lines, intersecting lines, transversal, supplementary angles, complementary angles, interior angles, opposite angles, alternate angles, corresponding angles)

Make a geometry review game using Scratch.

One possible answer screen.

In the next class, a gallery walk will take place.

Students will sit with various partners during the class to check their games. They will use the co-created list of terms to quiz their classmates. Ask them to point to an area on the diagram that corresponds to a review term. Have them check their answers by tapping the key that will reveal the answer.

Fewer or selected terms could be illustrated.

Gamify the activity. Add a sprite that prompts the user to find the correct location on the diagram. Allow the user to gather points for correct answers. Identify another series of math content/terms and create games to review.
