How did Pythagoras come up with his Pythagorean Theorem for Right Triangles?
(The sum of the squares of the two legs is equal to the square of the hypotenuse.)
Let Pythagoras himself show your students his graphical method! Worksheet by teacher Daniel Evans.
Pythagorean Theorem by Pythagoras. (He w
This is a poster of one of the most famous mathematicians of all time - Pythagoras. Not only did he come up with our middle school staple, the Pythagorean Theorem, he may have murdered one of his followers for discovering irrational numbers. Interesting fellow to say the least.This poster comes in t
Click here to view the Pythagoras’ Theorem – Solving Complex Problems lesson on-line. The worksheet can be downloaded.Students learn how to apply Pythagoras' Theorem to calculate unknown lengths in a range of problems involving right-angled triangles. As learning progresses this is linked to fin
Motivate your students with this real life application of the Pythagorean Theorem! Did this convicted drug dealer sell drugs under 1000 feet from a school and therefore deserve a harsher sentence? The information comes from an actual court case. Includes quotes and a link to a New York Times art
The Pythagoras Theorem says that, for any right angled triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of remaining two sides.
Out of all the different way of proving it, we will learn it by using the concept of similar triangles
You may have seen dozens of different proofs of the Pythagorean theorem. But you will probably encounter this proof for the first time. This proof was made by Hüseyin DEMİR in 1931 when he was a middle school student.
An additional worksheet activity to the one already available in my store asking students to solve the problems and match to the answers on the page.An answer sheet is included. Digital Activity Available:If you decide to use this version of the resource, instructions are already in place but please
***This project was NOT my idea, but compiled by ideas that various teachers have posted online!!!!!!!***
Rather than test my students on Pythagorean Theorem, I decided that students can use something they know all about - Instagram - to showcase their understanding.

Use the template to cut out a puzzle to prove the theorem.
The image is drawn to scale, so you can cut out all the pieces and prove how they will all make a 5 x 5 square on the hypotenuse.
This is a part of the bundle in my store. If you want the full presentation with the animated version of this
Uses basic trig ratios and pythagoras theorem in the context of crime scene investigations. Document is editable and contains answers. Two pages and 7 questions - some with given diagrams and some that require students to draw the situation.
A whole lesson on introducing Pythagoras' theorem in 3D problems.Mostly focusing on cuboids but with a couple different examples to show at the end. This is more of an intro into Pythagoras in 3D rather than in depth difficult problems. The examples have space around them for the teacher to use and
Students learn how to use net drawings and apply Pythagoras’ Theorem to calculate the total surface area of square based pyramids.As learning progresses students are challenged to calculate the total surface area of composite solids including frustums.What's Included4 part interactive lesson with
