Equilateral Triangles Activity
Math Forum Resources
Alignment to Radnor Township School District Mathematics Standards and Benchmarks:
- Standard 2: Geometry and Measurement Concepts
- Apply the properties of one-, two- and three- dimensional geometric figures to describe, reason and solve problems about shape, size, position, and motion of objects.
- analyze and generalize geometric patterns, such as tessellations (6)
- familiarity with polygons (7)
- use transformations in the coordinate plane (8)
- recognize rotational and bilateral symmetry (8)
