Today you will be doing a math lab. This is like in scienceclass when you experiment in the lab and then write areport. Our laboratory will be the program GeoGebra. Thereport you write will be similar to a science lab report.First, take 10 minutes to play with the program. Drawwhatever you want and learn what the tools each do. Whenwe start you will need to know how to draw lines (includingparallel lines) and measure angles, so search for those while you explore.Okay, now it’s time to get to work!
Open a new workspace (ﬁle -> new)
Draw a line
Construct a parallel line (make sure to choose parallel from the menu)
Draw another line that intersects both of the parallel lines.What do you notice?To measure an angle you’ll need to select three points in the order youwould trace/name the angle. If you need to add more points, make surethey snap onto the line. Sketch the diagram. Record the name and measureof all the angles you see.What new observations do you have?Drag around the points and lines you created using the arrow tool.Watch to see if your observations remain true.Sketch the new diagram. Record another set of angle measurements.
Name:_____________________

Mathematicians have established names for the parts of this diagram so thatwe can all compare results:2 lines are
parallel lines
the 3
rd
line is a
transversal
(it intersects two other lines)The pairs of angles are called:

There are also the angle pairs we have already discussed in class.
