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.
