Students will practice using geometric mean to find the length of a leg, altitude, hypotenuse, or segments of the hypotenuse in a right triangle. Three of the problems are multi-step problems that require both geometric mean and the Pythagorean Theorem. This activity was designed for a high school level geometry class.
The answer to each station will give them a piece of a story (who, doing what, with who, where, when, etc.). This is a much more fun approach to multiple choice, and the students adore reading the story to the class. They get very excited to see which of their teachers is the "star" of the story.
ALL slides are given in an editable format so you are free to personalize the story for your students. PowerPoint is required to edit. Only story elements can be changed, not the actual problems.
