              Finding any length of a Right-Angled Triangle

              Key stage 3 mathematics for using Pythagoras' Theorem to calculate any length of 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.
