INQUIRY ACTIVITY SUMMARY

#1-3 are performed in the video

We cut the first triangle diagonal because it will form a triangle no like if you cut it straight it will give you a rectangle. We cut the second triangle straight because it will form a triangle and not another shape when cut horizontal or diagonal.

INQUIRY ACTIVITY REFLECTION

1.

**Something I never noticed before about special right triangles is**that we can get the patterns for special right triangles not by memorization, but by the Pythagorean theorem.
2.

**Being able to derive these patterns myself aids in my learning because****I do not have to cram in another pattern into my brain for it can remember it and if I freeze during the test and can't remember which pattern goes with what triangle I can actually take a couple of seconds and find the patterns by using the simple****Pythagorean theorem and not have to fail my test.**
