Finding any length of a Right-Angled Triangle

 

Students learn to apply Pythagoras' Theorem to calculate any length in a right-angled triangle.

Learning progresses from working with Pythagorean Triples to calculating the area of a right-angled isosceles triangle when only the hypotenuse is given.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate a smaller side of a Pythagorean Triple
  • Most students should be able to calculate any side of a right-angled triangle using Pythagoras’ Theorem
  • Some students should be able to apply Pythagoras Theorem to composite triangular shapes.
