Reflection: Student Communication SAS-sy Triangles - Section 2: Triangle Proof Project

 

In today's class, I gave my students 5 minutes to plan their project and it didn't go so well.  I felt as though they used the time somewhat productively but I had no idea of what their plans were! 

To address this, I created this half sheet, Who What Where Triangle Project, which I asked my students to complete the next class.  I found it very helpful to have, in written form, their exact plan for completing the project.  Moreover, I felt as though the entire class, when given a structured document like this, worked more productively and felt better about their next steps for the project.

SAS-sy Triangles

Unit 4: Tremendous Triangles
Lesson 4 of 10

Objective: Students will be able to identify when and how to prove triangles congruent using SAS congruence theorem.

Big Idea: In this student-centered lesson, students will explore and explain why the SAS congruence theorem works to prove triangles congruent.
