MATHEMATICS: Lines and Angles (Student Age 14-15)
Franklin High School, Livonia, Michigan
“To begin this sequence of learning, we reviewed posters on different angles and lines to remind the students about key terminology. Then, we explored angles and lines around the classroom to enable students to have a tactile, first-hand experience of these concepts.
Afterwards, we extended this to exploring for angles and lines around the school.”
High School Teacher
We began the session by reviewing the angles and lines posters; we then launched the lines and angles ClassVR playlist. To encourage students to apply their understanding, we had them find lines and angles on the projected architectural buildings on the board. Using digital ink and dry erase markers, we identified the different lines and angles on the projected buildings. Afterwards, the students put the ClassVR headsets on to explore all the lines and angles in the virtual world. We used the dynamic point of interest to help facilitate the group in the experience while collaborating about the different lines and angles in the 360 degree experience.
IMPACT ON LEARNING
The students were 100% engaged during the entire lesson on lines and angles. They love using the ClassVR headsets to enhance their learning experiences. The verbal communication and collaboration that took place throughout the lesson was incredible!
To identify a line and a shape (i.e. circle, square, triangle).
To identify the attributes of lines, circles, and angles with equitant measure.
To identify the attributes of perpendicular lines, parallel lines, and lines segments, angles, and circles.
