Triangle Problem Solving Differentiated Mini Lessons and Homework (Levels 1 - 9)
These lessons are leveled to ensure students demonstrate learning in a variety of ways which better prepares them for standardized testing.
Each worksheet comes with a stated LO (learning objective) and guided lessons (simple step by step notes) on the left column. Students can easily reference these notes while working. The two additional columns of problems provide ample opportunities for guided and independent practice. Two DOL (demonstration of learning) problems at the end provide the teacher with an opportunity to assess learning and take grades as needed.
A second worksheet provides homework review that aligns directly to the lesson. Additional mixed review worksheets provide the essential review and reteach that is needed to ensure mastery.
note: I am continually additional lessons and expect to have additional levels of mini lessons available this year.
Using this instructional format has engaged my struggling learners and allowed them to demonstrate consistent growth.

Skills and Concepts;
Level 1: Use side measurements to determine whether a triangle can be formed
Level 2: Use the relationship between lengths of sides to find the greatest and least possible lengths of sides by writing and solving inequalities.
Level 3: Solve real world word problems related to levels 1 and 2
Level 4: Measure and identify scalene, equilateral, and isosceles triangles by length of sides
Level 5: Use a protractor to measure angles and identify acute, obtuse, and right triangles.
Level 6: Solve real world word problems related to levels 3 and 4
Level 7: Find the unknown angle of a triangle by writing and solving one variable equations.
Level 8: Use the measurement of angles in triangle to find the shortest and longest sides.
Level 9: Solve real world word problems related to levels 7 and 8
These materials have proven to be an effective tool when modifying lessons for remedial students and providing mandated IEP modifications as it provides comprehensive and sequential remediation of skills, concepts, and problem solving applications.
Also available for purchase:
* Triangle Problem Solving Task Cards. With the problem on the front and the answer with explanations on the back of each card, students are able to practice their problem solving skills independently.
note: I have received great feedback from parents that felt these
cards provided them with an effective structured approach
to home study.
Accuracy is very important to me. I only sell materials that I myself use and attempt to have made all corrections before uploading. If you find an error, notify me and I will make corrections and send them to you in a timely manner.
