MM2G1. Students will identify and use special right triangles.
Standards MM2G1. Students will identify and use special right triangles. a. Determine the lengths of sides of 30°-60°-90° triangles. b. Determine the lengths of sides of 45°-45°-90° triangles.

MM2G1 a. Determine the lengths of sides of 30°-60°-90° triangles. b
MM2G1 a. Determine the lengths of sides of 30°-60°-90° triangles. b. Determine the lengths of sides of 45°-45°-90° triangles. Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the missing side of each right triangle. Express your answers as a radicals in simplest form.

MM2G1 a. Determine the lengths of sides of 30°-60°-90° triangles. b. Determine the lengths of sides of 45°-45°-90° triangles. What do you notice about the legs of each triangle? These triangles are called ________________ triangles. They are also known as triangles because: What do you notice about the hypotenuse with respect to each leg??
