Collecting Data in Geometry

Published on 10/20/2005

Activity Overview

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.
