This task is used as a warmup in geometry classes. The task focuses on classifications of triangles, and the postulates that come with the relationships between side lengths and angles. One problem asks students to construct an argument about scalene triangles and their angles. Students are also asked to find the midpoint of a line segment on a coordinate plane.

This warm up is created for geometry students learning about triangles. There are three problems, one asking students to find the midpoint of a segment on a coordinate plane, another asking students to construct an argument to justify a claim, and another asking students to classify triangles. Argumentation language is used in the first two problems, encouraging the use of evidence.
