Engaging MATH Worksheets, Tasks and Activities
Have your students apply their understanding of PARALLEL LINES cut by a TRANSVERSAL with these fun activities including a maze, riddle and coloring activity.
Parallel Lines & Transversals ~ Missing Angle MAZE
This is a self-checking worksheet that allows students to strengthen their skills in finding the missing angle when parallel lines are cut by a transversal. Students are given one angle. Students use their answers to navigate through the puzzle.
Parallel Lines & Transversals ~ Angle Pairs COLORING ACTIVITY
Students are prompted to identify given angle pairs using diagrams of parallel lines cut by a transversal. Students use their answers to color the picture.
Parallel Lines & Transversals ~ Solving Equations RIDDLE
Students must find the value of x using given angles created by parallel lines and a transversal. Students will have to write and solve equations. They must then use their solutions to solve the riddle.
All 3 of these activities allow students to practice solving problems with PARALLEL LINES cut by a TRANSVERSAL while incorporating fun into the classroom!
