Proving (a Theorem) and Disproving (a Theory)
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.
7th - 12th Math
Pythagoras and Distance Formula
In this Pythagoras and Distance Formula instructional 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.
9th - 11th Math
Problems in Context
In 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.
6th - 11th Math
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.
6th - 8th Math
Getting It Right! An Investigation of the Pythagorean Theorem
Learners construct a variety of right triangles using a right-angled set square, cutting corners from pieces of paper or cardboard, and using dynamic geometry software. They measure the sides of these various right triangles and record measurements in a spreadsheet.
