Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags?

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

CLASSIFICATION OF TRIANGLES

CLASS ASSIGNMENT 1

2. Classify the following triangles according to their angles (without the use of a protractor)

4. Classify the following triangles according to their sides.

CLASS ASSIGNMENT 3

Try and complete the theorems and explain the theorem on the basis of your own example (with the help of a sketch)

1.1 Theorem 1:

The sum of the angles on a straight line

Example:

1.2 Theorem 2:

Example:

1.3 Theorem 3:

The sum of the interior angles of any triangle is

Example: to prove the theorem, carry out the following instructions:

b) Mark the angles of the triangle with the letters A, B and C.

c) Tear off the angles of the triangle.

d) Paste the angles of the triangle next to one another on the line below so that the vertices face the point on the line.

Complete the following equation: AˆAˆ size 12{ { hat {A}}} {} + BˆBˆ size 12{ { hat {B}}} {} + CˆCˆ size 12{ { hat {C}}} {} = ………°

(Note how each angle is written.)

1.4 Theorem 4:

1.4.1 Before we look at theorem 4, it is important for you to understand the following terms. Explain the following terms with the aid of sketches:

• exterior angle of a triangle

• interior angle of a triangle

1.4.2 Complete:

The exterior angle of a triangle is

Example: (Use degrees in your sketch)

• The above four theorems will serve as reasons when you calculate the sizes of unknown angles.
• When calculating the size of any angle, you must always give a reason for your explanation.

2. Calculate the sizes of the unknown angles and provide reasons.(Your teacher will help you with the more difficult examples.)

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS 2 AND 3

1. Complete each of the following and give reasons for the following theorems:

1. Calculate the sizes of each of the unknown angles and provide reasons for each.
