This worksheet has 15 word problems designed to help students understand how the Pythagorean Theorem is used in the real world and to solve these kinds of problems. The question can be used as a worksheet for individual student use or as a partner activity or even as a team assignment. I used this as a search and rescue with my students working on teams of 2 -3 while 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.
