Love this Pythagorean theorem maze for my Geometry unit! This would be a perfect lesson / activity for an observation day. 8.7C Use the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse to solve problems. G.9B Apply the relationships in special right triangles and the Pythagorean Theorem, including pythagorean triples, to solve problems.
Mathematical Quilts by Elaine Krajenke Ellison. This one: Sierpinkskis Triangle - Waclaw Sierpinski, 1882-1969, was a Polish mathematician that was very interested in patterns, including Pythagorean triples. This triangle, a fractal, was found on the floor of a church in Anagni, Italy. This oldest fractal dates to 1104. It is said that this fractal, named after Sierpinski, is the first fractal in the fractal alphabet. The quilt is owned by the London Science Museum.
In Geometry of right triangles, Pythagoras theorem plays a major role which states that "The Square of the Hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides". A set of three positive whole numbers a, b, and c that are the lengths of the sides of a right triangle which satisfy the equation from the Pythagorean Theorem a2 + b2 = c2 is called a pythagorean triples.
This set of 36 printable Multi-Match cards will help students find the distance between points on a grid by using the Pythagorean Theorem (CCSS 8.G.8). Students will also learn 8 different Pythagorean triples. Just print cards on plain paper, cut, and play. ~by Angie Seltzer
