Tri kinetic challenge!!! pp

  1. 1. Tri-kinetic Challenge!!!<br />Linda Weatherford<br />Middle School Math Methods<br />Prof. Irving Lubliner<br />October 4th, 2011<br />
  2. 2. A Bit of Angle-ing First!<br />Right Angle <br /> (Exactly ninety degrees)<br />Acute Angle<br /> (Less than ninety degrees)<br />Obtuse Angle<br /> (More than ninety degrees)<br />
  3. 3. Triangle Time<br />Right Triangle<br /> (Contains a right angle)<br />Acute Triangle<br />(All angles are LESS THAN 90o)<br />Obtuse Triangle<br />(Contains an angle GREATER THAN 90o)<br />
  4. 4. Where are the Equivalencies?<br />Equilateral Triangle<br /> (All sides and all angles are equal)<br />Isosceles Triangle<br />(Two equal sides, and two equal angles)<br />Scalene Triangle <br /> (NO equal sides, NO Equal angles)<br />
  5. 5. Time to get Kinetic!<br />Rules:<br />Everybody participates<br />Each shaper must be blindfolded while in motion (NO peeking!)<br />Everybody is respectful and safe to others<br />
  6. 6. Roles<br /><ul><li>Navigator- Choose clear and concise instructions to help your team make different triangles.
  7. 7. Shapers- Follow the directions of the leader and work as a team to form shapes.</li></li></ul><li>The Challenge…<br />Participants stand in a circle blindfolded while each holding a segment of one large circular string. The participants must move themselves around the string to form the triangles they are given.<br />After each attempt we will remove the blindfolds and analyze our results.<br />
  8. 8. Further Thoughts…<br />What did you learn from our activity?<br />Can triangles have more than one description?<br />Why do equilateral triangles always have sixty degree angles?<br />Can an Isosceles triangle have an obtuse angle? <br />
