              Pythagoras’ Theorem – Shorter Sides

              Students learn how to calculate a shorter side of a right-angled triangle using Pythagoras' Theorem.  Later, as learning progresses students apply Pythagoras' Theorem to solve problems involving more difficult shapes.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a shorter side in a right-angled triangle using Pythagoras’ Theorem
              • Most students should be able to calculate the perpendicular height of an isosceles triangle.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the area of an equilateral and isosceles triangle.
