CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.B.7 Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. This activity provides partner practice in solving right triangles using the Pythagorean Theorem. Partner A finds a missing side; Partner B finds the missing side in another problem. Students add their respective solutions to match the target sum provided. The activity is self-checking.
The problems in this activity represent Pythagorean triples - all of the solutions are whole numbers.
