Geometry and Measurement

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.
