Have your students apply their understanding of the ANGLE SUM OF A TRIANGLE and the EXTERIOR ANGLES OF A TRIANGLE with these fun activities including a maze, riddle and coloring activity.
1. Angle Sum of a Triangle MAZE
This is a self-checking worksheet that allows students to strengthen their skills in finding the missing side (leg or hypotenuse) of a right triangle. Students use their answers to navigate through the puzzle.
2. Angles of a Triangle COLORING ACTIVITY
Students are prompted to find the missing side (leg or hypotenuse) of a right triangle as well as to determine if a triangle is a right triangle using the converse of the Pythagorean Theorem. Students use their solutions to color the picture.
3. Exterior Angles of a Triangle RIDDLE
Students must determine if a given triangle is a right triangle by using the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem. They must then use their solutions to solve the riddle.
All 3 of these activities allow students to practice solving problems using the ANGLES OF A TRIANGLE while incorporating fun into the classroom!
