Triangles

Description

This activity deals with scalene, isosceles, equilateral, and right triangles. Students use an interactive web page to drag and manipulate four triangles, one of each type, and use the handout(s) to guide their exploration.

There are two different handouts, one at the elementary level, and one at the high school level, available in three different formats. There are three interactive pages. At present, only the first page is referred to by the introductory handout, while the advanced handout uses all three.
