Proofs into Practice: The Pythagorean Theorem in the Real World
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...
