3. Given a few geometric figures or drawings, can you make (and clearly articulate) a

conjecture that you believe will always be true? Can you come up with a

conjecture that is interesting and or unexpected? (For example, noticing the angle

formed by connect the two endpoints of a diameter to any point on a semi-cirlce

4. Can you prove our paper-folding conjecture? (When you fold the bottom of a

piece of paper to form two adjacent triangles, the fold lines will form a right
