When parallel lines are intersected by straight line (a transversal), eight angles are created. Four of these angles are congruent acute angles; and the other four angles are congruent obtuse angles. When parallel lines are cut by a transversal, all of the obtuse angles will be congruent; and all of the acute angles will be congruent every time. Some of these angles (adjacent, same-side interior, and same-side exterior) will be supplementary, and they will form a straight line. The sum of these angles will be 180 degrees. Below, you will find a chart of the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal.

Quizlet: geometry terms gravity

Lesson (Parallel Lines Cut by a Transversal)
1. Guided notes: polygons, types of triangles, types of quadrilaterals, sum of interior angles of triangles and quadrilaterals
2. Demonstration and blended learning: IXL, grade 8, O.1, O.2, O.4 Classify triangles: right, acute, and obtuse angles

3. Introduction: parallel lines video

4. Patty paper angle exploration/Explore activity one from GoMath workbook pages 347 and 348: Students prove that angle pairs are congruent by tracing one angle and placing it on top of another. They can also prove two angles are supplementary by placing the traced angles adjacent to each other.
5. Demonstration and blended learning: IXL, grade 6, CC.13 Complementary and supplementary angles
5. Guided notes:

6. Guided practice: angle pairs sorting activity

7. Independent practice: IXL angle relationships, transversal of parallel lines, test corrections and missing work
