Publisher: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Description: This geometry lesson from Illuminations introduces a hands-on learning activity for students in grades 9-12. The class will use pasta to create models of triangles. They will examine the relationship between sides and angles of triangles. The triangle inequality model will be used to solve geometry problems, and the inequality for sides and angles in a triangle will also be examined. The lesson should require 1 class period to complete.
