Types of Triangles

Triangles abound in this BrainPOP triangle movie! In it, Tim and Moby introduce you to one of the sharpest shapes around. You’ll find out exactly what a triangle is, how many kinds there are, and what all of a triangles angles add up to. Discover the two ways in which we classify angles and the three categories within each group. You’ll also learn which triangles have three equal sides, which have two equal sides, and which has sides that are all different sizes! Finally, you’ll learn what a hypotenuse is, and the difference between acute and obtuse angles. It’s a festival of triangles!
