with your class. This content includes brief instructional material and two
types of activities:
Constructed Response Activity for students to complete as an individual
or a group assignment. Send each Constructed Response Activity to the
Insight 360 iPad Student App.
Assessment Item with CueTag™ for students to respond to via student
response devices. Receive instant real-time feedback and longitudinal
reports.
Definition of Alternate Interior Angles
Two angles that lie between two lines and on the opposite sides of a third line
are called alternate interior angles.
In the drawing below, 3 and 6 would be alternate interior angles since
they are inside the blue parallel lines and on opposite (alternate) sides of the
transversal (red line).
