1. Topic Of Lesson Plan-
 Pythagorean Theorem
2. Lesson Content-
 right triangle, square root, pythagorean Theorem, legs, hypotenuse. MA.C.3.3.1.2 applies the Pythagorean Theorem in real-world problems.
3. Goals And Expectations-
 1. All students will gain 70% proficiancy or higher on ICL quiz on using/applying Pythagorean Theorem.

4. Objectives-

 1.Students will be able to understand and use Pythagorean Theorem. 2.Students will be able to apply Pythagorean Theorem to real world situations.
5. Materials and Aids-
 -ELMO -White board -Projector -Laptop -Smartboard -computers/access to ICL -Bellwork worksheet -Notes -Pythagorean Theorem packet -Paired activity record sheet
6. Methods Used and Procedures-

A. Introduction-

 BELLWORK: 1. review of square roots 2. review of properties of triangle 3. review vocabulary: isosceles, right triangle, square root, perimeter, area of a triangle, area of square

B. Development-

 1.New vocabulary: legs, hypotenuse 2.Pythagorean Theorem: In a right triangle, the measure of the hypotenuse is equal to th sum of the squares of the adjacent legs. 3. Powerpoint slides (attached)

C. Practice-

 1.Given two legs, find hypotenuse. 2.Given one leg and hypotenuse, find other leg. 3. Converse - Is it a right triangle? 4. Finding hypotenuse of right triangle drawn on coordinate plane. 5. Real-world problems

D. Independent Practice-

 1. Pair activity (measuring around the room) 2. Sunshine State Standards Support Book pg. 61-63

E. Accommodations For Students-

 1. Printed slides (notes)for select students 2. Kinesthetic activity 3. Cooperative learning 4. Whole group instruction

F. Checking for understanding-

 1. Observation during paired activity 2. Independent practice 3. ICL Quiz on topic

G. Closure-

 1. Recall of Pythagorean Theorem and converse 2. Discussion of where else we might use it
7. Evaluation-
 1. Homework will include short paragraph on written explanation of the theorem.
