Self Check

ⓐ After completing the exercises, use this checklist to evaluate your mastery of the objectives of this section.This is a table that has four rows and four columns. In the first row, which is a header row, the cells read from left to right “I can…,” “Confidently,” “With some help,” and “No-I don’t get it!” The first column below “I can…” reads “solve applications using triangle properties,” “use the Pythagorean Theorem,” and “solve applications using rectangle properties.” The rest of the cells are blank
