Product Description
Special Right Triangles (45 - 45 & 30 - 60) Cut, Paste, Solve, Match Puzzle Act.

In this activity, students cut out 36 puzzle pieces that cover using radicals and the properties of special right triangles to find the measures of the missing sides of right triangles

Each puzzle includes:

** A diagram with the angles and sides labeled.
** two pieces to find the missing legs labeled x and y.

Students need to match the pieces together and use the given information to find the measures of the missing legs/hypotenuse. Note: This does include simplifying radicals and rationalizing the denominator. Each completed puzzle has 3 pieces. When everything is completed students will make 12 puzzles.

This product includes two version of the puzzles - Version 1) Teacher answer key with all of the puzzles correct. Version 2) Student version with all of the pieces scrambled so students can cut them apart and reassemble them.

I have also included a three page worksheet that has the diagram so that students can show all of their work in a neat manner.
