This engaging mystery picture activity is perfect for any Algebra or Geometry student. Your students will practice finding the missing side of a right triangle in a fun way while learning a little bit about the man the method was named after.
Students solve 16 problems, finding the missing side. They may need a calculator to find larger square roots. All answers are integers as each of the sixteen triangles is a Pythagorean Triplet. This should lead to great conversations. After determining the answer to each problem, they drag the accompanying puzzle piece onto the blank puzzle. When all sixteen are done, the puzzle is completed, and a picture of Pythagoras is revealed. There is also an optional mini WebQuest on his life. A link to a web site is given which will provide the answers.
Also included is a poster of Pythagoras for your classroom.
Detailed illustrated instructions on accessing and sharing this resource with your students are included as well as the link to the product. An answer key is provided.
Note: You and your students must have access to the internet and have individual FREE Google Drive Accounts to use this resource.
