### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Right Triangles - Geometry The Pythagorean Theorem and Its Converse Task Cards

In this set of 32 task cards and 32 matching annotated answer cards you will find cards meant to review/reinforce the Pythagorean Theorem, its Converse and the idea of Pythagorean Triples. You will also find a student answer sheet!

The cards are written to cover a variety of figures/topics:

****Cards 1 – 4 are introductory cards meant to test basic knowledge.

****Cards 5 – 12 feature diagrams asking students to find the missing leg or hypotenuse using the Pythagorean Theorem.

****Cards 13 – 16 feature story problems that are solved using the Pythagorean Theorem.

****Cards 17 – 24 give students a set of three numbers and ask them to tell if they are a right triangle and then are they a Pythagorean Triple.

****Cards 25 – 32 give students a set of three numbers and ask them to use the Converse of the Pythagorean Theorem to determine if a triangle is right, acute or obtuse

****The cards are also mixed in difficulty with some cards featuring whole numbers, while others have decimals or square roots.

Teaching Suggestions:
There are multiple ways to use these task cards. A few of them are:

****Pair students with a partner and have them pass the cards from pair to pair every 2 minutes.

****Separate the cards by concepts/difficulty and have students work in small groups depending on their abilities.

****Use the cards as part of a larger station activity.

I highly recommend printing multiple sets of task cards on card stock, laminating them and cutting them out to store in zip lock bags so that you have them for the next year/class. This ensures that you are not constantly needing to run a new set or giving up class time having the students cut them out!
