This is a Cabri Jr.™ activity detailing with how to construct a kite and investigating the following properties:
- The angles formed by the non-congruent sides are congruent.
- The diagonals are perpendicular.
- The diagonals split the kite into four right triangles where two sets of the triangles are congruent.
- The diagonal between the non-congruent angles bisects the kite into two congruent triangles.
During the Activity
This activity is provides step by step instruction on how to construct a kite using the Cabri Jr™ application on the TI-84 family of calculators. Then it provides step-by-step instructions for investigating the properties of the kite. All students will need is a copy of the activity and a calculator with the Cabri Jr. application.
