Reviewer Comments:

Triangle Mania is a card game that is played in groups of 4 students. Students work together to find missing side lengths and angles of triangles. The problems are grade appropriate and an answer key is provided. The answer key uses a code to identify the triangles, but the code is not shared or identified. (R = right, O = obtuse, A = acute triangle, I = isosceles and S = scalene). Directions for play are provided. The author also provides suggestions for classroom management. This activity would work well in a well managed classroom. Additional accommodations may be necessary in some classrooms. Overall a well created educational card game.
