Triangles Sides and Angles
Students explore the concept of triangles. For this triangles lesson, students prove and apply the Isosceles Triangle Theorem using Cabri Jr. on the graphing calculator. Students construct triangles and measure the angles. Students drag the points of the triangle to notice the relationship in angle measure. Students construct an isosceles triangle and develop the idea that isosceles triangles have two equal sides and two congruent angles.
