Materials needed: straws, protractor, ruler, and construction paper or cardstock Groups: small groups from 2 to 4 students Have students cut straws into the following lengths: 2 straws 8 centimeters in length 2 straws 11 centimeters in length 2 straws 5 centimeters in length Part 1 1. Have students put the shown. 11 cm 5 cm straws of different lengths together to form a triangle as

. "easure the angles of #oth triangles using a protractor. Questions: 1. $hat are the measures of the angles in the first triangle% 2. $hat are the measures of the angles in the second triangle% . $hat is the relationship #etween the angles of each triangle% 4. &re the triangles congruent%

5. 'an the straws #e rearranged to form a triangle with different angles% Part 2 1. (ake 2 of the straws, place them on a piece of paper, and form a )* degree angle #etween them.

"atch the correct shortcut for each set of triangles from the following choices, and tell whether or not the shortcut is valid for proving triangles congruent. 333, 3&3, &&3, &&&, &3&, 33&

• •

3 means that the corresponding sides of the triangles are congruent. & means that the corresponding angles of the triangles are congruent.
