This Connect Four game is intended for upper middle school math classrooms and focuses on finding missing side lengths of special right triangles. The special right triangles included in the game are 45-45-90 triangles and 30-60-90 triangles. The game is played in small groups or partners (2-6 players).

I currently have a Connect Four Bundle that includes Connect Four games for 5th/6th grade math. This Connect Four game (Special Right Triangles) is geared towards 8th grade math and IS NOT included in the Connect Four Bundle.
This product includes:
1) Rules of Play and Instructions
2) 6 Special Right Triangles Game Boards
3) 16 Special Right Triangles Playing Cards
4) 4 Special Right Triangles Answer Sheets
Topics include finding the missing side lengths of 45-45-90 triangles and 30-60-90 triangles when given one of the side lengths. Students must use properties of these triangles to determine the missing lengths.
In the Connect Four game, students flip over a playing card and must solve the problem on the card. Once a student gets their answer, they must cover up that answer on their board. The first person to get four in a row wins the game.
This activity is great as a small group activity or as a math center.
