Geometry (All math, actually) is better when it is HANDS ON!

Here the students are participating in various manipulative activities in order to explore and increase our understanding of Geometry.

Geometry is fun when it is hands on!

 

After learning about the 3 types of triangles: Equilateral, Isosceles and Scalene, the students are played  a game with partners.  Each student has their own sheet where they record their rolls of the dice and track their own type of triangle. They then determine if they are Equilateral, Isosceles or Scalene and tally up their points accordingly. Everything is better in a game!
