When I teach geometry, especially geometry involving angle measures like this problem, I like to describe the process of solving a problem as taking a little road trip. I describe it this way because this is how I personally feel when solving a problem like this – my eyes rove around the figure from one intersection to the next, and I hop in my little math car and drive along lines and stop at intersections to figure out where I am. Geometry is a very visual discipline, and as a visual learner, I have the most fun when I can trace a physical journey around the problem, solving things as I go. So let's hop in our math car and chase this problem down! The first step in any problem like... read more
