Right Triangles - Geometry Special Right Triangles Task Cards
In this set of 32 task cards and 32 matching annotated answer cards you will find cards meant to review/reinforce the properties of Special Right Triangles (30 - 60 - 90 and 45 - 45 - 90). You will also find a student answer sheet!
The cards are written to cover a variety of figures/topics:
****Cards 1 – 4 are introductory cards meant to test basic knowledge.
****Cards 5 – 20 feature diagrams asking students to find the missing leg or hypotenuse.
****Cards 21 – 32 feature story problems that are solved using the properties of Special Right Triangles
****The cards are also mixed in difficulty with some cards featuring whole numbers, while others have decimals or square roots.
There are multiple ways to use these task cards. A few of them are:
****Pair students with a partner and have them pass the cards from pair to pair every 2 minutes.
****Separate the cards by concepts/difficulty and have students work in small groups depending on their abilities.
****Use the cards as part of a larger station activity.
I highly recommend printing multiple sets of task cards on card stock, laminating them and cutting them out to store in zip lock bags so that you have them for the next year/class. This ensures that you are not constantly needing to run a new set or giving up class time having the students cut them out!
