Dancing Triangles--ID: 8250

Tenth graders investigate area and perimeter of triangles.  In this geometry lesson, 10th graders explore how the area and perimeter of a triangle are affected as the shape of the triangle changes.  The triangles are superimposed on grids which make it possible to estimate the area and perimeter without the use of a formula.
