Subject: Re: Triangular prisms
My first thought is that your students could construct the triangular prisms. I did a similar exercise with rectangular prisms which you can see here: http://mathforum.org/alejandre/workshops/recprism.html I realize that constructing triangles is a little trickier....but....if you didn't want them to construct them, you could give them a template. A fun twist would be to have one group measure the other group's prisms. I hope that helps. -Suzanne A., for the Teacher2Teacher service
