Triangle Construction: Side Length
The goal of this assignment is to learn how to construct triangles with different kinds of sides lengths and determine what kind of triangles they form. To do this assignment you must construct the six triangles with the given side lengths. Before making the triangles, can you determine what kind of triangle it will be? Hint: The pink dot moves the line and the blue dot rotates the line.
Questions: How could you tell what side lengths went where? The six types of triangles are: right, isosceles, equilateral, acute, obtuse and scalene. For all six triangles can you name what type(s) of triangle they are?
