Paper Folding Activity

Triangle congruence and similarity get a grounding in the physical world in a unique hands-on activity. Young geometers work to apply abstract concepts about angle measure and ratios to prove relationships between triangles they have created by folding paper. Questions asking the learners to make connections and predictions about the triangle relationships given other parameters, round out the activity. A great capstone activity to pull together a triangle unit.
