              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.
