Description:

This activity has students experiment with turning through angles in a conceptual, qualitative way. It can be used prior to studying angles quantitatively. Students are given descriptions of physical phenomena to emulate on either the included Flash applet or a hands-on manipulative. They rotate colored disks in a circle to mimic turns and angles. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions and instructions for making the manipulative.
