Shapes and Angles

Lesson 13

Objective

Solve problems involving the measure of more than two adjacent angles.

Common Core Standards

Core Standards

?

  • 4.MD.C.7 — Recognize angle measure as additive. When an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real world and mathematical problems, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure.

Criteria for Success

?

  1. See that angle measure is additive (i.e., when an angle is decomposed into non-overlapping parts, the angle measure of the whole is the sum of the angle measures of the parts).
  2. Solve addition and subtraction problems to find unknown angles on a diagram in real-world and mathematical problems that involve more than two adjacent angles, e.g., by using an equation with a symbol for the unknown angle measure (MP.2, MP.4).
  3. Write an equation to represent the unknown angle measure in a compound angle (MP.2).
  4. Know the angle measure of common angles (a straight angle, a right angle, a full circle) and use that knowledge to solve for missing angle lengths (MP.3).
