Practice applying the Pythagorean Theorem to triangles and irregular polygons with this missing lengths activity. In the download, you will receive two versions: task cards or a printable worksheet.

Students will use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve for missing lengths of a variety of shapes in order to solve a riddle. Problems range from basic to difficult and include a variety of shapes.

Once my students completed this activity, they said basic right triangle questions seemed easy!

14 task cards each feature a shape with a missing length. Students find the missing lengths using the Pythagorean Theorem and record answers on the sheet provided to solve a riddle. Great version to use with centers or groups. Also, you can hang the cards around the room and have students move about solving.

Worksheet Version
A one-page handout includes all the shapes. Students find the missing lengths using the Pythagorean Theorem and record answers at the bottom to solve a riddle. Great version for partners or individual practice.

Both versions are in PDF format, along with an answer key.
