Senior 3: COMPASS & PROTRACTOR

Dear Senior 3s,

This week you will be needing your ruler, compass and protractor from last year for the coming lessons as we will be doing some scale drawings. As soon as you see this post, please put them in your pencil case 🙂

If you don’t have them, obviously tomorrow we do not have a lesson and probably we won’t be having our lessons on Tuesday due to the Multi-marathon Day….so you have some time to find/buy them.

  • To be able to find the value of missing angles in parallel lines
    • Corresponding Angles are Equal (F)
    • Alternate Angles are Equal (Z or N)
    • Interior Angles add up to 180 (U or C)
  • The above angles in parallel lines facts may be combined with angle facts that we covered last year:
