In this super secret number puzzle, students work with the Pythagorean Theorem. These are straightforward questions that will help pre-algebra students work with the theorem. They will be given two sides of a triangle and asked to find the third side.
After the students find the answer to each question, they write the numbers in the appropriate blank at the bottom of the page. They should then add and subtract as indicated to obtain the super secret number.
After a bit of time, I tell them what the super secret number should be. If their super secret number matches mine, they probably did their problems correctly.
An answer key is included.
