Follow the Fence, Then the Hypotenuse

Young scholars investigate finding the side length of a figure.  In this finding the side length of a figure instructional activity, students construct a right triangle on a side length of a quadrilateral.  Young scholars find the length of non-vertical and non-horizontal sides of polygons.  Students use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle.
