In this two page file, the students are exploring and using their inductive reasoning to find the pattern that exists with special right triangles 30-60-90. The exploration piece has students using the properties of equilateral triangles and medians to create two 30-60-90 triangles. They will then reason through each triangle to complete the table and look for the pattern. It also builds students through easy, straight-forward problems to more complex problems. There are applications problems for each level as well.
