Abstract

Dear ADAPT Students,
We think that these plane figures can be organized into groups that share common properties. We went to Pythagoras but he died before he could tell us much. His last words were,
"Take measurements and focus on ratios..."
Beside his death bed we found 27 different pieces of cardboard cut into a variety of right triangles of various sizes and shapes. Please put the triangles into different groups that display at least two common characteristics and be prepared to explain to your instructor how you did it. You may wish to make a table of your measurements and calculations. Thanks and best wishes from Athens,
As always,
Your fellow students from Greece
