Continue the Four Kinds of Triangles. Begin Initial Research

  1. Continue instruction on triangles as necessary. 
  2. Begin research. Initial research should be done individually. This can be done as assigned homework or in class. The purpose of initial research is to give students the opportunity to view examples of triangles and art.
  3. Start Daily Learning Logs for individuals or teams. If the logs will be graded, announce grading standards and expectations.
