FC: Triangle Flip Book
1: Everywhere we go, we encounter geometric figures all around us. One of the most common shapes is definitely the triangle. This special shape comes in several different variations that keep things interesting! We will discuss isosceles, right, equilateral, and scalene triangles and show their existence in the "real world".
2: Isosceles Triangle Isosceles triangles have two sides that are congruent. The angles across from the congruent sides, referred to as "base angles", are also congruent.
4: Right Triangle Right triangles are triangles that contain one right (90 degree) angle. The longest side of a right triangle is referred to as the hypotenuse and the other two sides are called legs. If the other two angles are both 45 degrees, the legs are equal. Question: If that is true, what kind of triangle would it also be?
6: Equilateral Triangle Equilateral triangles have all congruent sides and all congruent angles. The measure of each angle is always 60 degrees!
8: Scalene Triangle Scalene triangles have no common sides or angles. As you may have guessed, scalene triangles are not as popular in the "real world".
10: The next time you think that math is nowhere to be found in the "real world", take a look around to appreciate the geometry around you.
