Day 108: Formalization of Conclusions

We reviewed the conclusions sought after from the computer lab investigation and developed a set of theorems that seem to hold true for trapezoids and kites. To avoid an information overload situation, we left any mention of isosceles trapezoids until next week. 

So far, we know:

  • Trapezoids in general have very little to offer us (One pair of parallel sides? Consecutive supplementary angles? That's it?)
  • Kites are neat, but incredibly confusion to describe in words (Two pairs of sides are congruent, but not that pair. No, not that pair either. Just take a guess). 

Students were then given the remainder of the class period to begin working on U7 WS2.
