Tired of the same computerized notes from your textbook? Are your students getting bored with all of their digital resources? Bring some "old school" handwritten notes back to your class. These notes include cartoon character illustrations and simple, easy-to-follow examples for the Pythagorean Theorem. They are written in way that even someone who doesn't know anything about the Pythagorean Theorem can follow.
Part 1 helps students identify the legs vs. the hypotenuse of the triangle
Parts 2 and 3 show different examples of when you have to solve for the hypotenuse vs. solving for a missing leg.
Sample problems are built in to the study guide that you can go over as a class while reading through them. Some problems have been left blank so that the students can practice solving them.
-These look better if you suggest that the students color the characters
-These notes work especially well for the lower level classes but the higher level students appreciate the humor as well!
