Angles in Polygons

Angles in Polygons

Author: Leif Park Jordan
Description:
  1.  

    Derive the interior angles formula for a polygon with n number of sides [(n-2)·1800].

  2.  

    Present the polygon exterior angles theorem (the sum of the measures of the exterior angles of a convex polygon, one angle at each vertex, is 3600).

  3.  

    Demonstrate how to solve for the measure of an interior or exterior angle of a polygon.

  4.  

    Provide examples that allow practice solving for unknown variables and angle measures.

 

This packet should help a learner seeking to understand how to determine the measures of interior and exterior angles of polygons.
