IPOD ACTIVITY - page 41

*Need colored set of 7 triangles for each group of 2 or 4

CALL MRS. KIRCH OVER TO DISCUSS

- Check labels on all 7 triangles

CALL MRS. KIRCH OVER TO DISCUSS

- What did you notice about the categories when divided into scalene, isosceles, and equilateral?
- What did you notice about the categories when divided into acute, obtuse, and right?
- What are Google's definitions of all 6?
- Which two couldn't be drawn from the chart?
- Go over how to mark sides and angles correctly as congruent.

COMPLETE PW 4.13 AND THEN CHECK YOUR ANSWERS BELOW

#15-24 make sure you have two descriptive words for each problem

CALL MRS. KIRCH OVER TO DISCUSS

- What were your 3 observations?
- Which ones did you list under the "confusing" section that we need to go over?

COMPLETE PW4.14 AND THEN CHECK YOUR ANSWERS BELOW

#25-29 use your conclusions from the linguine activity. Include a 1 sentence explanation with each answer.

#30-34 make sure you have two descriptive words for each problem

CALL MRS. KIRCH OVER TO DISCUSS

- What were the possibilities you came up with?

CALL MRS. KIRCH OVER TO DISCUSS

- Check the 5 drawings
- What transformations did you use? Show me
**KEY IDEA: If you are given ________, the triangles will always be __________ to each other no matter which way you draw them.**

COMPLETE PW4.15 AND THEN CHECK YOUR ANSWERS BELOW

#35-49 Your reason will either be SSS or something else.

*It is only congruent (right now) if you find SSS.

**Remember that VERTICAL ANGLES are congruent, and if two triangles share a side, that side is congruent.

CALL MRS. KIRCH OVER TO DISCUSS

- What triangle(s) did you draw?
- What is different about this construction from SSS (#2)
- Did everyone draw the same triangle? If not, what does this mean? (#3)
- Summarize the two big things we've learned so far this unit. (#4)

CALL MRS. KIRCH OVER TO DISCUSS

- How many triangles did you draw? Show me
- Are the triangles in #1 and #5 congruent? Why or why not? Show me.

COMPLETE PW 4.16 AND THEN CHECK YOUR ANSWERS BELOW

#50-61 use what you remember from before break (Supplementary, Complementary, Angles in a Triangle, Vertical Angles, Exterior Angles) to answer the questions.

PAGE 51-52 (TBD)

COMPLETE PW 4.17 AND THEN CHECK YOUR ANSWERS BELOW

#62-73 Your reason will either be SSS, SAS, ASA/AAS, or ***/SSA It is only congruent if you find SSS, ASA/AAS, or SAS. Remember that VERTICAL ANGLES are congruent, and if two triangles share a side, that side is congruent.
