Since students today tend to be more visual than anything else, a graphic organizer becomes a valuable math tool; that's why this generic triangular graphic organizer is appropriate for solving all kinds of formula problems such as d = rt, A = lw, or c2 = a2 + b2. This five page handout explains in detail how to use the graphic organizer. It also provides several examples with step-by-step explanations along with visual illustrations. Two pages of blank triangular graphic organizers to copy and use in your classroom are also included. A link to a video
lesson that uses the triangular graphic organizer is added. It may be privately viewed by the instructor or shown to the class to supplement the lesson.
