              Calculating the Hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle

              Students learn how to use Pythagoras' Theorem to calculate the hypotenuse of a right-angled-triangle.

              Later, as learning progresses they use Pythagoras' Theorem to determine whether a triangle is right-angled.

              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the squared area of each edge of a right-angled triangle.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the hypotenuse length of a right-angled triangle.
              • Some students should be able to use Pythagoras’ Theorem to determine whether a triangle has a right-angle.
