Challenge your students to deepen their understanding of the Pythagorean Theorem! This performance assessment includes two real-world problems in which students must draw diagrams, apply the Pythagorean Theorem with larger numbers, and communicate how their results can be used to solve the overall problem. The first problem involves using the Pythagorean Theorem in a two dimensional situation and the second problem is a 3-dimensional situation. If your district uses PLDs (performance level descriptors) this will effectively get you and your students to the end-goal of level five!
8.NS.2 is also embedded in this performance assessment.
