### Description

Ho Ho Ho. Bring holiday cheer into the math classroom with a Santa inspired Pythagorean Theorem and Distance 21st Century Math Project. Santa has come down with an untimely hamstring injury just days before Christmas Eve and causing all sorts of triangular chaos.

In this 19 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and handout resources for students to use. ***THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH A GOOGLE SLIDES INTERACTIVE VERSION INCLUDED. REDOWNLOAD IF YOU HAVE IT ALREADY***

-- In “Chimney Dilemmas” students will interpret ladder application problems and use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve for missing variables and make decisions.

-- In “The Workshop” students will engage in some higher order thinking to develop strategies for solving applied problems.

-- In “Twas the Night” student will use Latitude and Longitude coordinates and the Pythagorean Theorem to estimate the distance between cities.

-- In “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” students will calculate a total of 21 different Pythagorean Theorem problems so it might work better in partners or small groups.

-- In “The List” students will try to minimize the length of the entire trip. This is some rudimentary graph theory. There are many possible answers, but only one lowest possible version.

-- In “Dashing Through the Snow” students will sketch their final route for Santa on a map of the West Coast of North America.
