20 BYOD Resources For The 21st Century Schools by Hope Mulholland, TeachThought Intern BYOD policies–Bring Your Own Device–allow schools to bring technology into the classroom with a “bottom-up” approach. Such an approach can save money, allow students to use their own devices, and encourage a student-centered approach to learning. Recently we explained that “digital natives or not, technology dropped into the laps of students in schools isn’t always as accessible as it might be.

Brain Teasers Sliding Triangle The triangle at left lies on a flat surface and is pushed at the top vertex. The length of the congruent sides does not change, but the angle between the two congruent sides will increase, and the base will stretch. What is the maximum area achieved during this process? This brainteaser was written by Derrick Niederman. Solution: 200 square units; 32 units. For the first part of the question, the maximum area occurs when the angle between the sides is a right angle. For a more advanced trigonometry solution, remember that the area of a triangle can be calculated by taking half the product of two sides and the sine of the angle between those sides. For the second part of the question, note that if you bisect the original triangle, divide it into two right triangles, and rearrange the pieces, you can form a new triangle with exactly the same area. Again using a trig solution, A=(1/2)absinθ, where a and b are the side lengths.
