Ms. Shirley A. Williams’ 8th grade math class at Sumter County Middle School, worked to improve their understanding of angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal. The activity called “Dance Dance Transversal” connects the game “Dance Dance Revolution” with the concept of two parallel lines cut by a transversal. Each student was assigned to a mini dance floor, which consisted of two parallel lines cut by a transversal. Using the mini dance floor, the students were asked to perform the dance moves which included Alternate Exterior Angles, Alternate Interior Angles, Corresponding Angles, Same Side Interior Angles and Vertical Angles. After a brief warm up with the dance moves, the music started and the angles relationships scrolled up the screen. Once the students understood the parameters of the activity, the students began to master the dance moves, thereby improving their ability to identify the type of angles and their relationship created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal. Fun was had by all. The students featured in the picture are: Felicity Walker, Ja"Niya Thomas, LaChrista Pickett, and Zikiya Mitchell.
