Vertical Angles and Linear Pairs

Vertical Angles and Linear Pairs

Author: Leif Park Jordan

    Introduce vertical angles and how they are formed by two intersecting lines.


    Introduce and define linear pair angles.


    Provide practice examples that demonstrate how to identify angle relationships, as well as examples that solve for unknown variables and angles (ex.  and are vertical angles,  = 3x +2 and  = 6x – 1, solve for x and find the m and m)


This packet should help a learner seeking to understand how to identify and understand vertical and linear pair angle relationships.
