Pythagorean Triples Task Cards
Common Core 8GB7
TEKS 8.6(C) and 8.7(C)
Triples are a great way to begin practicing the Pythagorean Theorem since all of the answers are whole numbers. These cards are separated into groups to allow for differentiated learning / practice. The first group solves for the hypotenuse (c). This allows the students to ease into the idea of solving for an unknown side. Next they solve for a or b. This requires more equation manipulation. Finally the questions are mixed between the three for further practice.
In addition, the students get to come up with their own triples reinforcing their understanding.
You and your students will both enjoy this mixture of math and technology. Quick Response (QR) codes can add a new layer of fun to the classroom. These print very nicely in black and white.
Each task card contains a heading describing the subject of the question. "Pythagorean Triples" is written along the side to further identify these task cards.
You have many options with this set. You can use just the task cards with the QR codes. You can get your students up and walking around by using the non QR code task cards and posting the QR task cards around the room as the answers. Each QR code contains the answer to the question and in addition a positive comment such as “Congratulations!”, “Way to Go!” and “Awesome!”.
If you choose not to make use of the QR codes, you can use the answer sheet provided to check answers. Answers to all four groups of task cards are on one answer sheet.
