Tricky Triangles! 29 May 2012

Helford Class have been learning their triangles. For a 2D shape there is a lot to remember about a triangle as there are many different opes. After a few lessons identifying, drawing and labelling the properties of triangles we went out onto the playground to see what we could remember. We worked out; that by using 3 people who were the same height we would be able to make an Equilateral triangle, with two people the same height and another person we made Isosceles and Isolsceles Right-Angled triangles and with three people all different lengths we made a Scalene and Right-Angled Scalene triangle. Putting this into practise was a little harder but we still had fun remembering triangle facts and labelling our work in chalk.
