Triangle Side and Angle Inequalities
This video explains why triangle side and angle inequalities are important when solving proofs. In any triangle, the largest angle is opposite the largest side (the opposite side of an angle is the side that does not form the angle). The shortest angle is opposite the shortest side. Therefore, the angle measures can be used to list the size order of the sides. The converse is also true: the lengths of the sides can be used to order the relative size of the angles. (1:54)

Basically, you need to ask two kinds of question about the text's â€˜valueâ€™:

Improving the effectiveness of pupil group work: report on first results from the TLRP phase 2 SPRin

Pupils rarely receive training in group working, and teachers are often unsure of its benefits and place in the curriculum. The SPRinG project was therefore set up to develop,
