In this geometric mean and Pythagorean Theorem instructional activity, 10th graders solve 9 problems related to determining the geometric mean by applying the Pythagorean Theorem in each problem. First, they find the geometric mean between each pair of numbers and then. find the values of x and y and round to the nearest tenth. Then, students determine if the given measures are measures of the sides of a right triangle.
