Geometry Teachers! Does your district classify transversal angles using the words “Consecutive” or “Same-Side”?

It’s not the district. It’s the textbook. Book says same side and alternate. We teach that as well as consecutive and opposite. No telling what you might see on a test some day.

I know it’s basically the textbook, but some districts don’t rely on a single textbook, and even if they do, they usually end up aligning to the wording of their State Test. I’ve always taught “Consecutive”, never knew about Same-Side until this year with Pearson/Savaas. ...I was also today years old when I realized most books don’t even mention Consecutive Exterior angles — and my first book did so I always have. 15 years of teaching Consecutive Exterior, to have my coworker look at me like I’m nuts. My life is a lie. I need a drink.

We also have books with both. I prefer same-side to consecutive, because it is more descriptive and easier to determine from the name. There are lots of things that could be called consecutive. Also, it provides for easier abbrebiations: AIA, AXA, CA, SSIA. As you see, CA is already taken.

I use "Same Side". The kids get lost in the jargon of "consecutive".

I use consecutive interior angles

It's based on the book. We used to use same side and then when we got a new textbook we changed to consecutive

I teach consecutive interior. I also taught the students that some books showed same side.

Consecutive. But I share that some books use same side.

I teach same-side so that I can stress that the Same Side are Supplementary. I do also let them know that they can be called consecutive.

I use both terms.

I mostly use same side, but mention both.

I teach both, so they are used to both. our state tests use same sided.

Different books use each one. I think consecutive interior angles is a more concise definition.
