Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Properties of Isosceles Triangles - Section 1: Do Now

I have created two versions of this lesson, of which I usually teach only one. See Properties of Isosceles Triangles Alternative Lesson with Dynamic Geometry Software for the alternative version. With ever increasing access to technology it might be possible to use the alternative lesson as a blended learning version, or to combine the two lessons. Let me know if you choose to do anything with these lessons.
