Parallel Lines and Transversals (Day 2)

  1. This lesson is designed for a small group class of six special education students ranging from sophomores to seniors. These students struggle with math and grasping math concepts. They receive all direct math instruction in a small group special education classroom.
  2. This lesson is the second of several lessons in Chapter 3. This chapter deals with Parallel and Perpendicular Lines. It would be an appropriate lesson for the class at this time because it not only reviews the properties of parallel lines and the relationships between the angles formed when parallel lines are cut by a transversal but takes student’s learning a step further requiring each student to apply what they have learned to new situations as well as requiring them to create material that demonstrates their comprehension of the lesson’s main concepts.
