Special Right Triangles 30-60-90 and the 45-45-90
Diagrams with side ratios followed by problems for each side of special right triangles. Pages 1 and 2 have problems followed by sentence structures to help students connect the ratio between the leg of a 45-45-90 triangle with its hypotenuse or in a 30-60-90 triangle, the short leg with hypotenuse or long leg. Directions ask for answers in simplest radical form.
Page 3 has practice problems to find the missing sides of special right triangles.
*Prerequisite Skill: Rationalizing the denominator
