 Emma's Blog :) This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Angle Pairs This week, we have been asked to blog about angle pairs! Angle pairs are pairs of angles with special relationships. I have found a website that will hopefully help with your understanding of the 5 different angle pairs- supplementary, complementary, adjacent, vertical, and linear pairs!

Here it is:

When you get to the site, make sure you scroll down a little ways until you see a heading titled, "pairs of angles."

After reviewing each one, my favorite angle pair is the linear pair. It is easy to identify because it forms a line. I also find this one to be very interesting because not only is it a linear pair, it also doubles as adjacent supplementary angles. I think it is very cool how a linear pair can fit into two categories of the 5 different angle pairs!

To help me remember this angle pair, I came up with a very helpful strategy that you may find helpful too! The word 'linear', contains the word 'line', and this helps me to remember that linear pairs form a line! However, you will also need to remember that linear pairs have to be adjacent as well.

Hopefully, after looking at this website, you too have gained a knowledge of angle pairs, and will soon have a favorite just like me! Good luck!
