Interior Angles in Polygons

Today we investigated the sum of the interior angles in polygons. We knew that triangles create a sum of 180 degrees, but found that quadrilaterals have a total sum of 360 degrees, and that the easiest way to find the sum of other polygons is to count the number of triangles you can create inside them and times that by 180 degrees.

Our HW is on the handout: Interior Angles of Polygons and page 394 #2,3,5,7.

Some helpful files from previous angles lessons are the Angles Unit Overview and the Angles Summary.
