Included in this zip folder are 9 Power Point files. 2 are instruction and 8 are assignments.
Instruction file #1 is a 74 slide presentation over the Pythagorean Theorem. Many aspects of this famous theorem are investigated. It is geared to the student who has never seen the Theorem before. 2 concepts are investigated;
1. Determining if the sides of a triangle make a right, acute, obtuse or no triangle at all.
2. Finding the missing side of a right triangle
Assignment A is a 15 question multiple choice and yes/no assignment. The emphasis is triangle logic. The student must use the following properties of a triangle to answer the questions:
1. The sum of the interior angles is 180
2. The 2 shorter sides of a triangle add to be more than the longer side
3. The smallest side is opposite the smallest angle
4.The largest side is opposite the largest angle
