Triangle Unit Plan
Subject Area:
ELL Math/Geometry
Grade Level:
Class size:
20 students
Week Objectives
By the end of the week students will:
-Be able to draw/identify the 4 different types of triangles (isosceles, right,scalene, equilateral).-Be able to explain the differences between these 4 types (side lengths inrelation to others, angle measurements)-Understand the requirements for two triangles to be congruent-Have the ability to find the “missing angle” and or “missing side” on a giventriangle when given hints.-Have the ability to find the area and perimeter of 
any triangle
- Base x Height x 1/2 = Area- Side1 + Side2 + Side3 = Perimeter-Have a beginning knowledge of the Pythagorean Theorem for
right triangles
(will spend more time on this next week)-
Time-frame (General Lesson Plan)
Monday (Detailed Lesson Plan at the end)Length:
60 min.
Materials needed:-
10 protractors
20 rulers
20 calculators- 6 sets of paper triangles
Daily Objectives:
Understand what makes a triangle a triangle (3 sides, angle sum=180degrees)
Understand the 4 types of triangles
Lesson Outline:
1. Bell ringer: What are some examples of triangles in the real world? (5 min.)2. Discuss answers as a group, then compile a class list. (10 min.)3. Vocabulary review while modeling how to use protractor and ruler. (20 min.)4. Activity. (20 min.)5. Discussion (10 min.)5. Assign Homework: Start formula book (5 min.)
60 min.
Materials Needed:-
10 protractors
20 rulers
20 calculators- 20 missing angle worksheets
Daily Objectives:
Review Yesterday’s triangle lesson- Instruct about congruence of triangles using examples (two triangles arecongruent if they have one of these properties:
side-angle-side, side-side-side,angle-side-angle, angle-angle-side
)- Practice measuring angles and finding missing angles
Lesson Outline:
1. Bell ringer: Can a triangle’s angles add up to something other than 180degrees? explain your reasoning. (5 min.)2. Class discussion: Review and demonstrate why this can never happen. (5min.)3. Instruction about the congruence of triangles and review angles (20 min.)4. Class Activity: Find the missing Angle when we are given two angles on thewhite board w/o the use of a protractor.(20 min.)5. Short missing angle worksheet acts as a mini assessment to check studentunderstanding (10 min.)
60 min.
Daily Objectives:-
Discover formula: Perimeter of a triangle
Discover formula: Area of a triangle
Materials Needed:
- 10 rulers- 20 protractors- 20 calculators- Sheets of graph paper- Computer lab
Lesson Outline:
1. Bell ringer: (they are shown a triangle with labeled side lengths on thewhiteboard) What is the sum of the triangle side lengths? (5 min.)2. Class Discussion: Introduce the word perimeter and the formula they usedwithout realizing it:Side1 + Side2 + Side3 = Perimeter (10 min.)3. Activity: Use graph paper to show that a triangle are half the area of quadrilateral with the same base and height (they will manually count the # of squares to realize this at first). (20 min.)4. Computer lab: Area Tool online Application-http :// illuminations .nctm .org /ActivityDetail.aspx ? id =108(25 min.)Have students record in their notebooks the base, height, and area of tendifferent triangles5. I will ask students questions that will lead them to the formula of ½ x base xheight=area (explain that the height is always relative to the base that wechoose, hypothetically any side can be chosen as the base) (20 min.)6. Class discussion about what they discovered about the areas of trianglerelated to their prior knowledge of the area of a quadrilateral. (add to formulabook) (10 min.)
60 min.
Daily Objectives:-
Present Pythagorean Theorem
Materials Needed:-
20 rulers- 20 calculators
10 protractors
Lesson Outline
1. Bell ringer: Ask students whether two given triangles (drawn on thewhiteboard) are congruent (5 min.)2. Discussion: Find out what the students know about the Pythagorean Theorem(5 min.)
