Using a Table to Make Conjectures

Published on 07/19/2006

Activity Overview

This activity is used to practice making tables for investigating a geometrical problem and to develop techniques for trying different constructions to prove a theorem.

Before the Activity

See the attached Activity PDF file(s) for detailed instructions for this activity.

During the Activity

Follow the procedures outlined in the activity.
Students will:

  • Practice making tables for investigating a geometric problem and developing techniques for trying different constructions to prove a theorem.
  • After the Activity

  • Review student results:
  • As a class, discuss questions that appeared to be more challenging
  • Re-teach concepts as necessary
