# Geometry

## Objective

Identify and determine values of angles in complementary and supplementary relationships.

## Common Core Standards

### Core Standards

?

• 7.G.B.5 — Use facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in a multi-step problem to write and solve simple equations for an unknown angle in a figure.

?

• 4.MD.C.5

• 4.MD.C.7

## Criteria for Success

?

1. Understand that complementary angles are angles whose measures add up to 90°, and supplementary angles are angles whose measures add up to 180°.
2. Identify pairs of complementary and supplementary angles in angle diagrams.
3. Find the values of angles using complementary and supplementary angle relationships and equations.

## Tips for Teachers

?

Students studied angles in fourth grade, where they recognized angles as shapes formed when two rays share a common endpoint. They understood that angle measures are additive, and they solved addition and subtraction problems to find missing angles. In this lesson, students formally define complementary and supplementary angles, and they start to develop their understanding of angle relationships and how they can represent these relationships using equations.
