This article is written for middle school students to learn about triangle constructions. It is brief (one page), but will give your students scenarios in which no triangle exists, a unique triangle exists, and numerous triangles exist. This can be used in station rotations or with a whole class. I have included directions and activity sheets for use as a partner reading activity and small group summarizing.
