Pythagorean Theorem

Eighth graders draw right triangles and identify the parts of a right triangle: right angle, interior and exterior angles, hypotenuse and legs. They predict and identify any relationships that exist between the sides of a right triangle. They fill out a concept frame of their understanding of the Pythagorean theorem. They use dot paper in graphics software to draw three connecting right triangles and calculate the length of the hypotenuse of the largest triangle.

I am actually not a teacher, yet. I am a college student on my way to becoming a high school math teacher. Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver on several occasions. I have used it for everything from learning how to word a lesson plan to using a lesson plan I found on the site to teach a mini-lesson. I use it quite a bit now so I know it will be invaluable in my teaching career. It is great as it is and so easy to navigate.
