Draw and Analyze Geometric Figures: Cue Cards

Description:

In this lesson, students will work in small groups, programming Cue to draw triangles per a given set of conditions using the Sketch Kit. The objective is to recognize the conditions in which it is possible or impossible to draw a unique triangle or more than one triangle and explain the reasoning.

Objectives:

Students Will:

• program Cue to draw a triangle(s) under given conditions (e.g., lengths of sides or measurement of angles).
• recognize conditions that would make it possible or impossible to draw a unique triangle or more than one triangle.
• explain why it is possible or impossible to draw these triangles.
• record their reasoning on a Cue Card.
• recognize the attributes of equilateral, isosceles, and right triangles.
• use a metric ruler to measure sides of triangles in centimeters.
• use a protractor to measure angles.

Target Grades: 6 - 8
