Your students will love practicing the Pythagorean Theorem with this hands-on activity by Math Dyal. The puzzle has 18 problems where students must solve for the missing side. This activity will encourage mathematical discourse as students self-check their answers as they create the puzzle. If they solve the problem correctly, they find the answer piece and continue working, but if they don’t, they must help to correct the mistake before they can move on. Students will create problem solving techniques as they work through this activity. The puzzle pieces are jumbled so you can have students cut them out without seeing the answers. This product also includes a table of all the problems included, which can be given to students who are absent or who need this type of accommodation. This activity is great for math centers, stations, and rotations or whole group instruction.
