Have you ever tried to draw angles for a worksheet by holding a protractor up to the screen to measure each of the angles? Then, you move the ray a little bit and check the measure again? Well, I have! It is a tedious and lengthy process that I want to help you avoid.
When you are creating math worksheets, you want to make sure that you create angles on worksheets or activities that are mathematically accurate. If the angles you create are slightly off, your students may end up more confused than when they started trying to measure angles that are slightly off. Let’s change that and quickly make some mathematically accurate angles in PowerPoint!
If you want to create accurate angles in PowerPoint, you can use the “Rotate” tool in the “Shape Format” menu to rotate a ray and create a certain angle measure. Watch the video above to see it in action or check out the list below for a step-by-step walkthrough.
Let’s walk through the steps of creating an angle in PowerPoint™:
- Insert a ray or line from the shape menu.
- Duplicate the ray by pressing ctrl+d.
- Right click the second ray and open the format shape menu.
- Go to the “Size & Properties” menu then click “Size.”
- Change the rotation to the exact angle measure that you want in your resource.
- Link the ends of the rays to make a vertex.
You just created a mathematically accurate angle so your students can practice measuring angles without the confusion!
