### MEAP Preparation - Grade 6 Mathematics4.11 Recognizing the Type of a Triangle

 Polygons that have three corners or vertices and three sides or edges which are straight line segments are called Triangles. Triangles can be classified as: Equilateral Triangle: A triangles in which all the 3 sides are equal. Isosceles Triangle: A triangle in which 2 sides are equal. Scalene Triangle: A triangle in which no side is equal. Equiangular Triangle: A triangle in which all angles are equal. Acute angle Triangle: A triangle in which all angles are acute. Obtuse angle Triangle: A triangle in which one angle is an obtuse angle. Right angle Triangle: A triangle in which one angle is 90 degrees. Oblique Triangle: A triangle has only angles that are smaller or larger than 90°. It is therefore any triangle that is not a right triangle. Directions: Answer the following. Draw all the above kinds of triangles and show all the properties.
