What's in a name?
"That's so isosceles!" was a constant phrase I heard this year in class. During a lesson about classifying triangles one of my classes just thought the word isosceles was the coolest word ever-so later on in the year when they would learn something cool--they would say, "That's so isosceles!". Well that cracked me up first of all, but I wanted them to not only remember the name, but what it meant. So when they would say that I would say, "which is????" and they would respond by saying "Two congruent sides!" So now you know where this crazy blog name came from.
