To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.
Introduction to Logical Reasoning
This activity provides the opportunity to explore the validity of the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of statements. It also assists in recognizing the connections between biconditional statements and true conditional statements with a true converse.
Introduction to Probability
This activity provides the opportunity to explore the difference between finding the probability of independent events and dependent events. It also addresses how to use a tree diagram when calculating conditional probabilities.
