Geometry Files: More Triangles? Are you serious?

Posted on by 0 comment

Yes, I’m totally serious.  (see more files and FAQs here)

But we already did triangles, you say. Sure, we looked at congruent triangles, but did we look at stuff that can happen inside triangles?!?!  There’s a lot of good discovery activities for these rules, also here are some rudimentary geogebra files I made:

Triangle Files from megcraig.orgI make mine draw out and label the median for each problem; the visual seemed to help a lot of them see the relationship between what was given and what we need.

Homework:

Then let’s put all this together!

Then another powerpoint for exterior/interior angle and angle/side inequalities:

Then I guess I did more stuff with possible sides of a triangle?  Then some practice:Triangle Files from megcraig.org(file here) wiiiiiiiith powerpoint!

And more inequalities!!

ARE WE DONE WITH THESE TRIANGLES YET?!?!?!?!

Yes!  Now just a review!

Finally!  There can’t be anything else we can do with triangles, right?!?!  (Shh…we won’t talk about trig coming up, ok?)
