Formula Determination

Students derive a formula for the interior degrees in any convex polygon. In this geometric figure lesson, students determine the shapes of various polygons and the number of triangles formed. They use this information to derive the formula (N - 2)180 = the number of degrees in any convex polygon, with N being the number of sides.
