MA.C. 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-
-White board
-computers/access to ICL

-Bellwork worksheet
-Pythagorean Theorem packet
-Paired activity record sheet
6. Methods Used and Procedures-

A. Introduction-

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.
