Directions: Use the integers 2 through 10, at most one time each, as lengths of individual sides to form three triangles. What is the smallest total area of the three triangles you can create? What is the largest?
For Trig: “How can we find the area of a triangle if we know all three sides but no angles?”
In general: “How can I make sure all three are triangles?”
Maximum Area: 2-3-4, 5-6-7, 8-9-10
