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. Realworld problems 


D. Independent Practice
1. Pair activity (measuring around the room)
2. Sunshine State Standards Support Book pg. 6163



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.
