This Name That Triangle assessment also includes:
Given a line segment and its perpendicular bisector, pupils visualize a triangle with the endpoints and a point on the perpendicular as its vertices. Learners determine the type of triangle formed and provide a justification for the classification.
- Have the class brainstorm what other types of figures they could construct using the end points of a line segment and points on its perpendicular bisector
- Class members should understand the relationship of the points on a perpendicular bisector and the endpoints of the line segment
- Individuals need to know the classifications of triangles
- The rubric provides the definitions and wording of the theorem referenced in the solution
- Contains work samples
