This worksheet includes; homework prep, standard, modified, and answer key worksheets. This satisfies the some of the requirements for common core 7.G.6 and 8.G.7. The first page is given to the students as homework prep and I model the next three pages of this worksheet for the students. This is design to show students different strategies to find the diagonal length of a tilted square. The count the unit squares method is use by students who struggle because they feel comfortable counting. The next strategies are where we want to move the students. It is important that they understand that all three methods will produce the same answer. This worksheet was more difficult to produce. I recommend it for teaching side length of tilted squares.
