Everyone LOVES sticky notes and now your students can use them to complete this worksheet! In this activity, students will use Pythagorean Theorem to solve for unknown sides in right triangles. Students will complete the first 8 questions on the space provided on the worksheet. The last eight questions students will use their sticky notes to draw the triangle and solve for the unknown side. To check their answers they will match their solution on the sticky note to the one of the solutions in the first 8 questions they completed on the worksheet.
