Polygon Sum Conjecture
LES T ON
There are many kinds of triangles, but
My spouse and i find that the harder I work,
a lot more luck We seem to have.

in Chapter four, you discovered that the
sum of their angle measures is actually
180В°. In this lesson you are going to investigate
the sum from the angle measures in
pentagons, and other
you are going to look for a
design in the total
of the perspective measures
in any polygon.

Do they offer a Polygon Quantity Formula?
You will need
Window Frame (T) for starters Step
Quadrilateral Amount Conjecture (W),
Sketchpad activity Polygon Sum
Conjecture, optionally available
College students find that most polygons
together with the same range of sides
have a similar angle assess
sum. Conversely, knowing this kind of
sum permits students to find the
number of factors.
Draw the polygon. Properly measure all the interior perspectives, then locate the quantity.
Discuss your benefits with your group. If you scored carefully, you must all have similar sum! In case your answers usually are exactly the same, locate the average.
Copy the table below. Repeat Actions 1 and 2 with different polygons, or share benefits with other organizations. Complete the table.

You can now produce some hypothese.
[ELL] You could review the terms
cuboid, pentagon, hexagon,
heptagon, and octagon.
Show the Window Frame transparency and pose this problem:
" You need to build a window
