Grade 6 - Shape and Space

Standard 6.SS.1 - Practice constructing obtuse, acute and right angles with a protractor.

Included Skills:

Demonstrate an understanding of angles by:
identifying examples of angles in the environment
classifying angles according to their measure
estimating the measure of angles using 45°, 90° and 180° as reference angles
determining angle measures in degrees
drawing and labelling angles when the measure is specified.
