Classifying Triangles (By Angles, Given Sides) Task Cards
Through this task card activity, students will practice classifying triangles by angles given the three side lengths. First, they must determine if the given sides could represent a triangle using the Triangle Inequality Theorem. If they do, they will classify the triangle further as acute, right, or obtuse using the converse of the Pythagorean Theorem. This activity was designed for a high school level geometry class
A recording worksheet is included for students to show their work and record their answers. They can check their answers by scanning the QR code on each card. Connection to the internet is not required to scan the code. However, a QR scanner app is required on the device. There are several free apps available to download.
If you haven't used QR codes in your classroom yet, I highly recommend them! Students love using the technology, and the self-checking makes it easier on the teacher!
A version without QR codes is included as well.
