Through a hands-on activity, students will discover the Triangle Side Inequality Theorem (sum of any two sides must be greater than the third side). Students will use manipulatives to determine which combinations of sides will form triangles.
Discovery Activity details:
➡ 10 investigative examples for students to use 3 given side lengths in order to construct a triangle.
➡ 8 practice problems using the Triangle Side Inequality Theorem.
★ pipe cleaners, straws, popsicle sticks, or strips of paper cut into various sizes, ranging from 1 inch to 7 inches.
