This worksheet has 15 word problems designed to help students understand how the Pythagorean Theorem is used in the real world as they solve these kinds of problems. The questions can be used as a worksheet for individual student use, as a partner activity, or even as a team assignment. I used this as a Search and Rescue activity with my students working on teams of 2 -3 while I was being observed. My students loved the assignment and were totally engaged in conversations about where numbers belonged and completed every problem within 45 minutes. I hope this assignment is very helpful for you also.
