Students investigate the concept of the Pythagorean Theorem for geometry by using word problems. The challenge is for them to translate the words into the right measurements for a triangle looking for the longest side known as the hypotenuse.
Who is Pythagoras and what is the Pythagorean Theorem? Ben knows and he's made a video all about it! The Pythagorean Theorem is defined, the procedure is demonstrated, and an example is provided. Ben also mentions how the theorem is used in architecture and engineering. Note: His narration is fast so this video might need to be slowed, stopped, and discussed.
Take a walk through time, 1852 to 1994, following the mathematical history and development of the Four-Color Theorem. Learners take on the role of cartographers to study an imaginary world of countries that need to be mapped. One rule: no adjacent country can be the same color. One question: What is the minimum number of colors the map maker should keep in stock?
Prepare pupils to read poetry. This is a student reference sheet that could be used as a handout or as a basis for notes. Included on this page are instructions on how to read a poem, discuss a poem, and determine a rhythm, as well information about poetic literary devices and forms.
As an introduction to the lesson, learners verify the Pythagorean theorem with a hands-on proof. Then, pupils use the theorem to determine whether three side lengths could form a right triangle and choose one of two real-life situations to examine using the theorem. Terrific activities and worksheets are embedded.
Investigate vectors and learn how to use them. Explore why size and direction, as well as knowing speed and distance, are important components of the vector problems you are trying to solve. This is an extensive lesson which includes six different activities, each with examples and problems to solve.
Seventh-graders solve 20 various types of problems related to ratio and rate. They write ratios in simplest form for each given statement, to compare the area of two figures, and write two ratios equivalent to each ratio. Pupils express each statement as unit rate and determine the value of each ratio. This well-written worksheet provides many real-world examples, including the graph of the speed of racing motorcycles.
In this Pythagorean Theorem worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 19 various types of problems. First, they draw the square shown and divide its sections as shown. Then, students cut out the 6 parts of the square and rearrange the 4 triangles to form the square shown. They also find the total area of the two squares.
Today we are going Greek! Provide the class with a clear and well-organized overview of all things pertaining to ancient Greece. From early Greeks and Homer, to the Persian Wars and great philosophers, this slide show has it all. Review questions are provided at the end of each major section.
Fourth graders use the story of the discovery of irrational numbers to explore the different classes of numbers, the different ways in which numbers may be represented, and how to classify different numbers into their particular class.
In this Ancient Greece activity, students read a 3 page article on Ancient Greece, answer 3 facts about Ancient Greek with multiple choice answers, answer 4 statements as true or false and answer 4 fill in the blank facts about Ancient Greece.
Students study a variety of math concepts in the context of cooking up a meal. In this math lesson, students calculate surface area and volume. They draw and interpret different types of graphs.
For this trigonometry worksheet, students solve and complete 5 various types of problems. First, they find the exact ratios for each trigonometric function. Then, students use the expansion to find the exact value of a given trig function. They also solve the equations shown by restricting their answers.
In this solving equations worksheet, 9th graders solve and complete 21 various types of problems. First, they use the method shown to find the value of xin each equation. Then, students use an algebraic approach to solve the magic squares illustrated. In addition, they use the table to solve the equations of the model provided.
Young writers design and publish a newsletter with articles that demonstrate knowledge of mathematical concepts. They explain mathematical procedures and basic operations in a news article format. Next, they compile several articles to make a newsletter. Use this interdisciplinary lesson to connect a math and language arts class.
Sixth graders are paired up, and are assigned a famous person from ancient Greece. They utilize the program Animoto in order to create a presentation on their famous person from the past. Pericles, Homer, Socrates, and Artistotle are a few of the many people who are assigned. Links to websites, and an excellent worksheet to guide them through the process are embedded in this fine plan.
Use projects, real-world activities, and games to bring precalculus to life for students.
Middle schoolers are introduced to the Pythagroean theorem. They construct right triangles on graph paper and draw squares on each side of the triangle. The attributes of a right triangle should become clear to pupils as a result of engaging with this fine resource. Fantastic worksheets and weblinks are embedded in the plan, which should make it easy for you to implement. Terrific!
Students review what they comprehend about angles. They name the differnt types of angles and define them. Students use their protractors to answer questions, the teacher walks around to look at the positioning of the protractors. They discuss finding the reflex angle if they are having problems with this.
Tenth graders explore the Pythagorean Theorem and Pythagorean Triples. In this geometry lesson plan, 10th graders explore methods of finding Pythagorean Triples including using Fibonacci sequences.
