Conditions of Use
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!
