This activity is designed to help students FIND the AREA of TRIANGLES using SAS, Heron’s and regular formulas. This is a level 2 activity because student will also use the Triangle Angle Sum Theorem in order to find the needed angle to use SAS formula, and they will also use Pythagorean’s Theorem in order to find the base and height needed to use the regular formula.
This activity also gets students up and about. Place the 12 cards on the wall around your room. Students pick any card to begin with. On their own paper they should graph the system on the bottom of the page. Students then look around the room for a graph that matches theirs. Now they graph the system on that page. They should continue until they return to the card they started with.
This activity includes
- 12 Card Walk Around Activity
- Smaller 6 Card Version
