TODAY IN GEOMETRY…  Practice: Solving missing sides using the Pythagorean Theorem  Learning Target 1: Use the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem determine if a triangle is a right triangle  Independent Practice  Learning Target 2: Use the properties of Special Right Triangles to find missing sides.

REVIEW: USING THE PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM TO FIND MISSING SIDES

PRACTICE: Identify the unknown side as a leg or hypotenuse. Then, find the unknown side length of the right triangle. Write your answer in the simplest radical form.

CONVERSE TO THE PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM: 3 PARTS!!!

PART 1: RIGHT TRIANGLE if… PART 2: ACUTE TRIANGLE if… PART 3: OBTUSE TRIANGLE if… CONVERSE TO THE PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM:

PRACTICE: Tell whether a triangle with the given side lengths is a right triangle.

HOMEWORK #2: Pg. 444:1-6, 8, 10, 12 If finished, work on other assignments: HW #1: Pg. 436: 3-29 odd

PRACTICE: Find the value of x and y. Write your answer in simplest radical form. *We’re given the shorter leg first, we can start with any of the two equations for 30-60-90 triangles!

PRACTICE: Find the value of x and y. Write your answer in simplest radical form. *We’re given the hypotenuse first, we can start with the first equation for 30-60-90 triangles!
