8th Grade Geometry
Common Core 8.G.B.7
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.
This product comes with the learning goal and scale. I've included a version with the common core standard and a version with the MAFS standard. There are 24 task cards for you to use in your student engaged classroom. The answer key is provided.
Task cards can be used for a variety of purposes, such as:
1. cut apart and insert into academic notebooks for students to solve
2. exit slips
3. place in a learning center for students to practice while you meet with other students for differentiated instruction
Scoot! Directions: Place the cards around the classroom. Each student (or pair of students) start at a different card and solves the problem. The student records the answer on their paper. When the appropriate amount of time has passed (dependent on skill), signal for the students to rotate to the next card in numerical order. I like to use music to signal movement. Students continue to rotate around the classroom solving each problem. This is a great review activity to engage students and use movement in your classroom.
This produce is geared toward 8th grade geometry standards. It could be used as enrichment in 7th grade or as an intervention tool in high school.
The context of the questions have been worded to align with the 8th grade FSA item specifications.
This product was made with the help of my brother, who holds a degree in mathematics. He has spent many years tutoring students from kindergarten to college level in various math content.
