              Introducing Pythagoras’ Theorem

              Students discover Pythagoras’ Theorem through construction of Pythagorean triples.  As learning progresses students apply the theorem to calculate the length of the hypotenuse in right-angled triangles.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to identify the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle as the longest side.
              • Most students should be able to calculate length of the hypotenuse in a right angled triangle.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the length of the hypotenuse in an isosceles triangle when given its base and perpendicular height.
