Description:
  1.  

    Introduce and define the angle bisector and demonstrate how to label one (ex. )

  2.  

    Provide practice examples that demonstrate how to use angle bisectors to solve for unknown variables and angles (ex. is bisected by , = 3x +2 and  = 6x – 1, solve for x and find the m and m).

  3.  

    Demonstrate how to construct the bisector of a given angle.

  4.  

    Present how if a point is on the bisector of an angle, then it is equidistant from the two sides of the angle.

  5.  

    Present how the angle bisectors of a triangle intersect at a point called the incenter.

 

This packet should help a learner seeking to understand the angle bisector.
