Triangle Congruence Proofs Review Game

# Triangle Congruence Proofs Review Game

Ratings: (0)|Views: 2,978|Likes:
This is a simple game to get students to practice triangle congruence proofs. Students start with the page that has "RP" in the upper right hand corner. They do the proof and find the answer to that proof on a different sheet of paper. On the back of the answer is another problem for the students to complete, then students search out the answer to the new problem and repeat the procedure. At the end, if they've kept track of the order they worked the problems in, they can place all the letters in order, unscramble them and a message appears.
