In this Pythagorean Theorem Proof Discovery Worksheet, students will follow a logical explanation to prove that given a right triangle with sides a, b, and c, a^2+b^2=c^2. Students will be given pictorial representations to aid in the development of conceptual understanding. Students will need red, blue, and green colored pencils in part of the activity to help with visualization. Connections to concepts will be made including interior angles in a triangle and angles making up a straight line. All mathematical concepts included in this proof are intended to be age-appropriate for eighth graders.

This product is part of the Discovery-Based Worksheet Series. Discovery-Based Worksheets have been specially designed to engage students in learning that moves beyond traditional skills practice. Students will develop a deeper understanding of the big idea and will make connections between concepts. These worksheets make a great introduction to a new topic or summary at the end of a lesson or unit. Try one today!
