Product Description
This is a set of 12 task cards in which students must use the Geometric Mean to solve for leg, altitude, and hypotenuse segment lengths in right triangles. Students will use both Geometric Mean Theorems in this exercise:
• The altitude drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle separates the hypotenuse into two segments. The length of this altitude is the geometric mean between the lengths of these two segments.
• The altitude drawn to the hypotenuse of a right triangle separates the hypotenuse into two segments. The length of a leg of this triangle is the geometric mean between the length of the hypotenuse and the segment of the hypotenuse adjacent to the leg.

Cards 1-10 get progressively harder.
Cards 11&12 are challenge cards that require the knowledge of how to solve quadratic equations.

Answer key and student response sheet included.
