Geo-board 2D Triangle Area Challenge
Use this Geo-board Applet to help you experiment and create triangles of area 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 square units. Draw your results on the Geo-board 5x5 grid paper that I provide you. Make sure to label the area of each triangle that you draw. Is it possible to create all of these triangles? Did you find that some of the triangles were simple to draw and others were more difficult? Feel free to work together to try to find them all. We will share our results at the end of class.
