This podcast is based on activities found in David A. Adler's book Shape Up! Fun With Triangles and Other Polygons. In this podcast, we focused on types of triangles and angles. Students enjoy the hands on activities created by Mr. Adler, as well as a little snack time afterwards. This activity provides a concrete visual that students can use in other geometry activities.
