Have your students apply their understanding of PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM and the CONVERSE OF THE PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM with these fun activities including a maze, riddle and coloring activity.

What is Included:

1. Pythagorean Theorem MAZE

This is a self-checking worksheet that allows students to strengthen their skills in finding the missing side (leg or hypotenuse) of a right triangle. Students use their answers to navigate through the puzzle.

2. Pythagorean Theorem COLORING ACTIVITY

Students are prompted to find the missing side (leg or hypotenuse) of a right triangle as well as to determine if a triangle is a right triangle using the converse of the Pythagorean Theorem. Students use their solutions to color the picture.

3. Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem RIDDLE

Students must determine if a given triangle is a right triangle by using the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem. They must then use their solutions to solve the riddle.

All 3 of these activities allow students to practice solving problems using the Pythagorean Theorem while incorporating fun into the classroom!
