              Lengths in Right-Angled Triangles

              Students learn how to use Pythagoras' Theorem to calculate missing lengths in right-angled triangles.    As learning progresses they solve more complex problems involving triangular shapes.
              Lengths in Right-Angled Triangles Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use Pythagoras’ Theorem to find any length of a right-angled triangle.
              • Most students should be able to use Pythagoras’ Theorem to find the height or base of an isosceles triangle.
              • Some students should be able to prove Pythagoras’ Theorem using algebra.
