Measuring Angles with DreamBox Learning
In this video, I share how DreamBox develops students’ conceptual understanding of the relationship between angle measurement and rotation. In these highly visual lessons, students learn to estimate angle measurements, use benchmark angles, and reason deductively about angle relationships. This open-ended virtual manipulative even helps students intuitively make sense of angle measurements greater than 180 degrees as well as negative rotations. There are many common misconceptions about angles, and these DreamBox lessons prevent such misunderstandings from forming.
