I have just reached 10, 000 followers on twitter and as a thank you for everyone’s continued support I thought I’d share this thing. I made it for my six year old son.
These are taken from “The Pythagorean Proposition”, but I can’t follow the logic for this one. Help anyone?!
This is another simple worksheet for students who struggle with the area of a triangle. There are no calculations involved, as this is more of a precursor to area problems. All students have to do is identify what lines in each diagram can be used to find the area. I find most worksheets on this just give students the two numbers to work with, which tests the wrong thing in my opinion.
I’ve made a very simple worksheet for constructions using a compass and pencil. Rather than just mindlessly creating bisectors and perpendicular lines, I’ve made it more interesting and challenged students to find the orthocentre, circumcentre and incenter of a triangle, because why not?
