This Math Matcher puzzle is a great way to review the Pythagorean Theorem with your students! This puzzle encourages students to work together and help one another, but still provides enough flexibility that each student can work at his or her own pace and skill level.
Each group of students receives a set of 25 Math Matcher cards. Their task is to complete all of the problems on each side of the cards, and match them to the corresponding solution on another card. When the puzzle is complete, all of the cards together will form a square.
Problems in this set ask students to solve for either the missing leg or the hypotenuse for a right triangle. Questions give students values for a, b, or c (there are no diagrams).
