In this triangles worksheet, learners find the missing length or the perimeter of triangles when given the altitude and the degrees of each angle. Each of the five multiple choice problems features a hint button to assist students. Problems are selected at random from a large problem bank allowing for a new set of problems each time the worksheet is accessed. The worksheet is self-scoring.
Students view a right triangle displayed by the teacher. Students measure legs and the interior angles of the triangle. They look for a pattern or relationship between the legs and angles. Students use pegboards and string to create more isosceles right triangles. They listen as the teacher explains the Pythagorean Theorem.
Young scholars draw and label right triangles. In this right triangle lesson, students use Cabri Jr. technology to draw and label right triangles. They create other special right triangles and identify the length of the hypotenuse and each leg. Young scholars explore the ratios to determine how the hypotenuse and how the legs are related.
In this geometry worksheet, 10th graders review the vocabulary associated with the special segments of a triangle and the associated points of concurrency and solve problems in which they find the indicated missing angle or segment. The nine page worksheet contains forty-six questions. Answers are not included.
