Product Description
Pythagorean Theorem Choose One Activity:

This is an activity that can be used to practice Pythagorean theorem. There are 16 cards. Each card has 2 problems on it. The cards start out easy and progressively get more difficult. They switch off between students being given 2 sides written out and asked to find the measure of the 3rd side, and students being given a triangle with 2 sides identified. Students “choose one” of the problems to solve. There are 2 choices (example: spaghetti or salad – student chooses which one they’d prefer & use Pythagorean theorem to find the missing side under their choice). This allows students to have a bit of ownership over their work as they are the ones who decide what problem they solve for each question.

Recording sheet and answer key are included!

There are many ways to complete this assignment.
A) You can cut the cards out and have students pass them around.

B) Have students pair up and work together to complete the problems. If using pairs one student could complete all of the A problems while the other completes the B problems.

C) Create centers with the cards and have students rotate through the centers completing problems.
