Students are introduced to the Pythagoras' Theorem and its history, proofs and practice in application. Students find perimeters, areas and volume of everyday objects. Students state and explain the theory.
A lengthy narrative about Pythagoras and his students precedes an activity in which your young mathematicians practice using the Pythagorean theorem to solve three problems about flight and distance. Answers are provided.
In this triangles worksheet, students solve 40 problems in which Pythagoras' theorem is used to check if a triangle is right-angled. This page is intended for online use but may be completed on paper.
Middle and high schoolers research the life of Pythagoras and the Pythagorean theorem. They write a short biography of Pythagoras and learn to apply the theorem in their study of right triangles.
As a cross-curricular lesson, your class examines the issues of gender discrimination, careers, and gender roles. They read and discuss an article, prepare a proof of the Pythagorean theorem as a class, and develop a creative representation of Pythagoras' ideas.
Fifth graders explore Pythagoras' Theorem. They examine the pattern linking the length of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle and the length of the other two sides. Students find an unknown side in right angled triangles.
Students construct right triangles, measuring the sides and recording the measurements in spreadsheets. They analyze their measurements for patterns and research the Internet for information on Pythagoras.
Eighth graders find connections between numbers in a table; use Pythagoras' theorem in a general algebraic form; and measure accurately from a scale drawing to find a method that might enable the helicopter to land inside a rectangular region.
Students prove the theorem of Pythagoras. In this Pythagorean Theorem lesson, students define the different parts of a right triangle. They use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve for the missing sides and angles of a right triangle.
In this Pythagoras' Theorem worksheet, students solve problems having to do with square roots and numbers to a certain power. Students match up the answers for 30 problems.
Students solve problems using the Pythagorean Theorem. In this geometry lesson plan, students solve for the missing angles of triangles. They apply ratios of the Pythagoras formula to solve for the missing side and angles.
Students investigate the concept of the Pythagorean Theorem. After conducting independent practice to find the hypotenuse of a triangle, they work with the teacher using examples in the lesson plan. The direct instruction is delivered using a question and answer format.
Fifth graders use sin to solve problems involving right-angled triangles, Solve equations of the form sin(++) = a, for a between -180++ and 360++. They State and graph the value of sin(++) in special cases. They describe some of the ways in which the sine, cosine and tangent functions are related.
For this Pythagoras' Theorem worksheet, students read through an explanation of how to solve problems with Pythagoras' Theorem and answer 4 questions in the explanation. Then, students use Pythagoras' Theorem to answer 6 problems. They can click on the "Check" box to determine whether their answer was right or wrong. The worksheet is graded at the bottom of the page.
Students explore Pythagoras' Theorem. In this geometry instructional activity, students complete 4 pages of equations using Pythagoras's Theorem. Students complete 14 problems.
High schoolers research the concept of the Pythagorean Theorem. In this Pythagorean Theorem lesson, students use the Internet to learn about the Pythagorean Theorem. High schoolers construct proofs of the Pythagorean Theorem.
In this Pythagoras and Distance Formula activity, students read real-life story problems, determine needed information, write equations, and then solve the problem. Students use the Pythagorean Theorem and Distance Formula to compute answers. This three-page activity contains 5 multi-step problems.
Learners explore Pythagoras and the history behind his theorem. They work together to solve a proof that is embedded in the lesson.
Students research the history of Pythagoras and the development of the Pythagorean Theorem. They write a research paper about Pythagoras. students use Microsoft Word to produce their paper.
