pick IT-flip IT-solve IT is an activity that allows students to practice using the pythagorean theorem to find a missing side, through a self-check method.
The activity includes 16 cards that contain pythagorean theorem problems on one side and answers on the other side. Cards should be laid down answer-side up. One card will read "START HERE" - the students will flip it over and be given a problem to start with. Students will complete the operation shown on the card and their answer will lead them to a new card. If their answer is not shown on the remaining cards, the students will know to re-check their work. This allows the students to work through the system at their own pace while receiving immediate feedback. This file contains 4 variations of the same set of problems, so that students will not be able to copy one another's work.
