This activity was created to allow students to incorporate their personal interests meaningfully into their math work.
Students should choose 8 different themes that represent them or things they like. For example, baseball, soccer, cheer leading, reading, reading, movies, etc. Also students should choose a medium in which to use when creating their special right triangles (fabric, scrap paper, magazine pages, etc.)
Students will also need to determine what type of mounting material they will use to put their special right triangles and descriptions on.
This project could be done in stages by just creating the part for each special right triangle when going over that type.
