Instructional Ideas

  • Group individuals that used a similar approach and have them work together to solidify a proof
Classroom Considerations

  • The class should be comfortable using similar triangles in proofs
  • Class members need to know how to find a median
Pros

  • The key shows two different proofs
  • Figure contains the midpoints
Cons

  • None
