This set of 18 task cards give students practice finding unknown values by using their knowledge of:
the sum of angles in a triangle = 180 degrees
algebraic equations- writing and solving
combining like terms
each task card has a different triangle, and has each angle labeled with a variable expression or the right triangle notation. Students will need to write an equation using the variables for each angle and solve the equation to find the value of "x".
Students will get practice writing algebraic equations, combining like terms, solving equations and checking solutions for validity.
An answer key is included.
Two different student response sheets are included- one to respond with the value of "x" and the other to show the value of x and the equation they wrote to solve the problem.
