The Pythagorean Theorem
Students create both a visual and formal proof of the Pythagorean theorem, as well as view four additional geometric demonstrations of the theorem. They construct a square and conjecture the following theorem: The sum of the areas of the squares on the legs of a right triangle is equal to the area of the square on the hypotenuse.

Perimeter, Area, and Volume
After providing your learners with a pre-assessment, group learners by ability level. Groups develop and use strategies to find perimeter of regular or irregular shapes using string, paper clips, links, and other objects. They find the area using tiles or counting squares of regular and irregular shapes on a grid.
