Properties of Special Quadrilaterals Exploration

Published on 06/09/2008

Activity Overview

Students are given a TI-Nspire file with special quadrilaterals so that they can use the dynamic measurement capabilities of the TI-Nspire to explore which properties always hold true for each quadrilateral.

Before the Activity

Ensure that the file SpecialQuadrilateralsExploration.tns is on each student handheld. Students may type solutions into the file or you may copy the student handout for them to organize the properties.

During the Activity

When I used this activity, I had each group explore one quadrilateral in-depth and report their findings to the class.
