This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 9, Unit 7, Grade 7. In this activity, students are asked to draw as many different triangles as they can with the given conditions. The purpose of this activity is to provide an opportunity for students to see the three main results for this unit: a situation in which only a unique triangle can be made, a situation in which it is impossible to create a triangle from the given conditions, and a situation in which multiple triangles can be created from the conditions. Students are not expected to remember which conditions lead to which results, but should become more familiar with some methods for attempting to create different triangles.
