Move Along Little Vertex

Middle schoolers find the area of non-right triangles. They will find the area of non-right triangles by changing them into right triangles. They use a geoboard program on their calculators to manipulate non-right triangles. Then they record the length and height of the triangle to ensure the area does not change.
