In this blog post we write about making of the parallel lines and a transversal maths TLM model – diy – easy steps using cardboard and color paper
Creating a parallel lines and a transversal math TLM (Teaching and Learning Material) model using cardboard and color paper can be an effective way to demonstrate the properties and angles formed by parallel lines intersected by a transversal.
Let’s build a simple 3D model representing this geometric concept.
- Cardboard (for the base and lines)
- Color paper (for labeling and details)
- Glue or double-sided tape
- Marker pens or sketch pens
- Cut a rectangular piece of cardboard to serve as the base of the model.
- Parallel Lines:
- Using a ruler and pencil, draw two long and straight lines parallel to each other on the cardboard base. These lines will represent the parallel lines.
- Draw a third line that intersects the parallel lines at an angle. This line will represent the transversal.
- Cutting and Pasting:
- Cut strips of color paper to represent the parallel lines and the transversal. The width of the strips should be uniform.
- Paste the color paper strips over the drawn lines on the cardboard base to make the lines more visible.
- Angle Measurement:
- Using a protractor, measure and mark angles formed by the parallel lines and the transversal. You can label the angles as “1”, “2”, “3”, etc.
- Labeling and Details:
- Use marker pens or sketch pens to label each angle accordingly. For example, label angle 1 and angle 2 as “alternate interior angles,” and label angle 3 and angle 4 as “corresponding angles.”
- You can also add labels to indicate the parallel lines and the transversal.
- Decorating the Model:
- Use markers or color paper to decorate the model and add more details to make it visually appealing.
Now, you have a simple 3D parallel lines and a transversal math TLM model made from cardboard and color paper. This model can be a helpful visual aid to understand the properties of angles formed by parallel lines and a transversal.
