Independent practice: Paper & pencil
angles:
An angle has two sides that
share a common endpoint.
What we need to know about
angles:
The point where the sides meet is
called the vertex.
What we need to know about
angles:
• Angles are measured in degrees,
where 1 degree is one of 360 equal
parts of a circle.
Angles are classified according
to their measure.
An acute angle is less than 90°
An obtuse angle is more than 90°
A right angle is 90°
Right Angle

• A triangle is a figure with three sides and
three angles.
• The symbol for triangle is
What we need to know about triangles:
• The sum of the measures of the angles of
a triangle is 180°.
• You can use this to find a missing angle
measure in a triangle.
Triangles can be classified by the
measures of their angles.
• An acute triangle has three acute angles.
• An obtuse triangle has one obtuse angle.
• A right triangle has one right angle.
Triangles can also be classified by
the lengths of their sides.
• Sides that are the same length are
congruent segments and are often
marked by tick marks.
• In a scalene triangle, all sides have
different lengths.
• An isosceles triangle has at least two
congruent sides.
• An equilateral triangle has all three sides
congruent.
