5-1 Classifying Triangles

Today we will be learning how to classify triangles according to length of sides and measurement of the angles.

First we will learn to classify by the

ANGLES

Right triangles have ONE right angle

Acute Triangles have three acute angles

Smaller than 90o

Smaller than 90o

Smaller than 90o

Acute Angle

Obtuse Triangles have ONE obtuse angle

Obtuse Angle

We will now learn to classify triangles by their sides.

If you collapsed all of the sides they would form a line.

Equilateral Triangles have 3 equal sides

Isosceles Triangles have 2 equal sides.

Scalene Triangles have NO equal sides.

Classifying  Triangles  by  Their  Sides  §  EQUILATERAL  –  3  congruent  sides

§  ISOSCELES  –  at  least  two  sides

congruent

§  SCALENE  –  no  sides  congruent
