I know that it's summer out there, but I always felt like having a new math series on my blog, and there is no better time than now to get it started. Since my daughter is now beyond beginner math, I thought that it would be more fun to focus on the concepts for higher grades, because there is plenty of material out there already on addition, subtraction, and other K-2 concepts. So my post today is all about angles.
Hands-on resources and math games about angles

Angles Art

Studying angles is simply asking for an art project, and I want to share several ideas with my readers:
Explore the relationship between angles and circles and learn to use a protractor with this beautiful project from In the Classroom.

Explore different types of angles while building or drawing snowflakes - project from Relentlessly Fun Surprisingly Educational.

Create abstract geometric art with a lesson from Learning in Hand

Learn about different types of lines and angles with this Angle and Line Art lesson from Better Lesson

Measure and draw triangles to create this striking triangle art from Multiplication.com.

Learn About Angles with Computer Games

  • Alien Angles - interesting, but frustrating challenge to "estimate" various angles.
  • Kung Fu Angles - figure out angles between 2 points on the circle
  • Angles Jeopardy - it has an interesting section on angles formed by parallel lines.

I LOVE that you're doing a series for older kids for math. It's so hard to find good stuff.
