Extension Investigation

  1. Students can make a presentation like the one below http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7DmUymGR28&feature=related
  2. Virgo is one of the constellations of Zodaic. Three principal stars of the constellation form a triangle. If mS=25 and mP=135, then find the mV. http://worksheets.tutorvista.com/angles-in-a-triangle-worksheet.html

Layering (optional)

How do we show that all of the angles the triangle add up to 180?
