This maze consists of 11 right triangles in which students must use the Geometric Mean to solve for leg, altitude, and hypotenuse segment lengths. Students will use both Geometric Mean Theorems in this exercise:

This product includes a foldable with the theorems and corollaries for similarity in right triangles. It also includes a easy warm up (hands-on), step by step activity in power point to guide your students to discover the theorem about the effect of the altitude to the hypotenuse on a right triangle.The foldable includes the corollary 1 and 2, about the geometric mean to find altitude and the geometric mean to find the short and long leg in right triangles.

Geometric Mean in Right Triangles is for grades 8-12 Many students struggle with finding the geometric mean in a right triangle. They struggle with seeing the relationships between the similar right triangles formed by the altitude and the largest right triangle. These manipulatives allow students to not only see how the right triangles are really similar triangles, but they also help students to solve using the Geometric Mean.
