              Pythagoras’ Theorem – Finding the Hypotenuse

              Students learn how to derive and apply Pythagoras' Theorem to find the hypotenuse of right-angled triangles.  As learning progresses they are challenged to apply Pythagoras' Theorem to a range of problems.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle.
              • Most students should be able to calculate length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle when given in a real life context.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the distance between two coordinate pairs.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
