### Process (How to do the activity)

A triangle is a three sided closed figure

Draw triangle ABC

Vertices - A, B and C

Sides – AB, BC and AC .

(AC can also be called as CA, AB as BA)

Angles - ∡a**b**c, ∡c**b**a ∡a**c**b (Middle letter is the vertex of the angle. First and third letters are points on the sides of the angle)

A triangle has 3 vertices, 3 sides and 3 angles. Which of these need to be specified to draw a triangle?

Draw the altitude from vertex A to segment BC. Label the intersection as D

Measure its length. Measure ∡ADB and ∡ADC.

Measure the area of the triangle ABC
