Creating a working model to demonstrate the six types of interior angles using a rotatable design is a fantastic way to visualize and understand these mathematical concepts.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to making this model using cardboard, color paper, and a cardboard pipe for the rotatable mechanism.

### Materials Needed:

• Cardboard (for the base, rotating disks, and pipe)
• Color paper (for covering and labeling)
• Scissors or craft knife
• Glue or hot glue gun
• Markers or pens
• Brass fasteners or paper fasteners (for attaching the rotating disks)
• Ruler
• Compass (for drawing circles)

#### 1. Prepare the Base and Rotating Disks

1. Base Preparation:
• Cut a large rectangular piece of cardboard for the base. Cover it with color paper for a neat finish.
2. Rotating Disks:
• Use a compass to draw six triangle on cardboard. These will be the rotating disks, each representing a different type of interior angle.
• Cut out the circles and cover them with color paper.
3. Cardboard Pipe:
• Create a cardboard pipe by rolling a piece of cardboard into a cylindrical shape and securing it with glue. This will serve as the central axis for the rotating disks.

#### 2. Label and Attach Disks

1. Label Disks:
• Label each disk with the name of an interior angle type and include the definition and an example of the angle.
The six types of interior angles might include:
• Interior Angle (general)
• Alternate Interior Angles
• Same-Side Interior Angles (Consecutive Interior Angles)
• Angles of a Polygon (Sum of interior angles)
• Interior Opposite Angles
2. Attach Disks to the Pipe:
• Make a hole in the center of each disk using a compass or craft knife.
• Insert the cardboard pipe through these holes. Ensure the disks can rotate around the pipe.
• Secure the disks in place with brass fasteners or glue if necessary, allowing for rotation.

#### 3. Create Definitions and Examples

1. Definitions and Examples:
• On each disk, write the definition of the interior angle type and draw an example showing the angles.
• Use color paper to make the examples visually appealing and easy to understand.

#### 4. Assemble the Model

1. Attach Pipe to the Base:
• Make a hole in the center of the base for the cardboard pipe.
• Insert the pipe through the hole and secure it with glue, ensuring it stands upright and allows the disks to rotate freely.
2. Position the Disks:
• Ensure the disks are evenly spaced along the pipe and can rotate without obstruction.

#### 5. Demonstrate the Interior Angles

1. Interior Angle (General):
• On one disk, define an interior angle and draw an example within a polygon.
• Include the definition: “An interior angle is an angle formed between two sides of a polygon that is inside the polygon.”
2. Alternate Interior Angles:
• On another disk, define alternate interior angles and draw an example with two parallel lines and a transversal.
• Include the definition: “Alternate interior angles are angles that are on opposite sides of the transversal and inside the parallel lines.”
3. Same-Side Interior Angles (Consecutive Interior Angles):
• On another disk, define same-side interior angles and draw an example.
• Include the definition: “Same-side interior angles are two angles that are on the same side of the transversal and inside the parallel lines.”
4. Angles of a Polygon (Sum of Interior Angles):
• On another disk, show how to calculate the sum of interior angles of a polygon.
• Include the definition: “The sum of the interior angles of a polygon is (n-2) × 180°, where n is the number of sides.”
5. Interior Opposite Angles:
• On another disk, define interior opposite angles and provide an example.
• Include the definition: “Interior opposite angles are the angles formed inside a polygon by extending one of its sides.”
• On another disk, define interior adjacent angles and provide an example.
• Include the definition: “Interior adjacent angles are two angles that share a common side and vertex inside a polygon.”

#### 6. Final Touches

1. Ensure Functionality:
• Check that all disks can easily rotate around the cardboard pipe to reveal the different angle types.
• Use different colors for different angle types to make them stand out.
• Add small arrows or lines to clearly illustrate the angles.

### Example Layout:

• Top Disk: Interior Angle (General) with definition and example inside a polygon.
• Second Disk: Alternate Interior Angles with definition and example using parallel lines and a transversal.
• Third Disk: Same-Side Interior Angles with definition and example.
• Fourth Disk: Angles of a Polygon with formula and example.
• Fifth Disk: Interior Opposite Angles with definition and example.
• Bottom Disk: Interior Adjacent Angles with definition and example.

By following these steps, you can create an interactive and educational rotatable model to demonstrate different types of interior angles.
