This package includes my exploration for 45°-45°-90° and 30°-60°-90° special right triangles. Students explore connections between the lengths of the sides in these triangles. Students need a centimeter ruler to complete this activity and must have prerequisite knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem and simplifying radicals.
Also included are teacher directions, a complete, color answer key, and PowerPoint presentation to guide students through the activity. This exploration has been classroom tested over several years. The activity provides a meaningful opportunity for students to explore important geometrical theorems and review previously learned concepts in the areas of Geometry and Algebra 1.
Individual activities can also be purchased separately:
45°-45°-90° Special Right Triangles Exploration
30°-60°-90° Special Right Triangles Exploration
