This activity is designed for students to make conjectures about triangles. Students will create three lists to represent the measures of the angles of the triangle. The entire class list will then be sent to each student for analysis, comparison, and drawing a conclusion.
This activity offers an opportunity to connect data collection and geometry. Students will use Cabri™: Jr. App to draw triangles and manipulate angle measures.
Before the Activity
Students will review complementary and supplementary angles and solving one-variable equations.
During the Activity
Teacher will import and augment student data (lists).
After the Activity
Students will complete Activity Sheet and Learning Check™ assignment. Teacher will use Screen Capture to help check for student understanding.
