Pythagoras Questions

This resource consists of a power point lesson that can be used to teach or revise the use of Pythagoras’s Theorem and 11 worksheets for consolidation or revision. The theorem is used first in right-angled triangles then in isosceles triangles and for finding the length of the diagonals of rectangles. The worksheets provide a framework for calculating the distance between two points given as co-ordinates, there are grids to help students visualise the method. Other topics covered include areas and perimeters and also the properties of triangles and a triangular prism so that Pythagoras can be applied to solving more complicated problems. DfE reference for GCSE 2017 G20, G15, G16, G11, G6, G1, G4, A18, A8, N7 Please review this resource. For more resources like this please visit the SKILLSHEETS Shop

Pythagoras' theorem

A complete lesson for first introducing Pythagoras’ theorem. Activities included: Starter: A set of equations to solve, similar to what pupils will need to solve when doing Pythagoras questions. Includes a few sneaky ones that should cause some discussion. Main: Examples and quick question to make sure pupils can identify the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle. Optional ‘discovery’ activity of pupils measuring sides of triangles and making calculations to demonstrate Pythagoras’ theorem. Questions to get pupils thinking about when Pythagoras’ theorem applies and when it doesn’t. Examples and quick questions for pupils to try on the standard, basic questions of finding either the hypotenuse or a shorter side. A worksheet with a mild progression in difficulty, from integer sides and answers to decimals. An extension task of a ‘pile up’ activity (based on an idea by William Emeny, but I did make this one myself). Plenary: Some multiple choice questions to consolidate the basic method, but also give a taster of other geometry problems Pythagoras’ theorem can be used for (e.g. finding the length of the diagonal of a rectangle). Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

Pythagoras - Pythagorean triplesQuick View

Pythagoras - Pythagorean triples

A complete lesson, or range of activities to use, on the theme of Pythagorean triples. A great lesson for adding some interest, depth and challenge to the topic of Pythagoras’ theorem. Activities included: Starter: A set of straight forward questions on finding the third side given two sides in a right-angled triangle, to remind pupils of Pythagoras’ theorem. Main: Slides explaining that Pythagoras’ theorem can be used to test whether a triangle has a right angle. A sorting activity where pupils test whether given triangles contain a right angle. Quick explanation of Pythagorean triples, followed by a structured worksheet for pupils to try using Diophantus’ method to generate Pythagorean triples, and, as an extension, prove why the method works. Two pairs of challenging puzzles about Pythagorean triples. Plenary: A final question, not too difficult, to bring together the theme of the lesson (see cover image). Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
Pythagoras' theorem in contextQuick View

Pythagoras' theorem in context

A complete lesson looking at slightly trickier questions requiring Pythagoras’ theorem. For example, calculating areas and perimeters of triangles, given two of the sides. Activities included: Starter: A nice picture puzzle where pupils do basic Pythagoras calculations, to remind them of the methods. Main: Examples of the different scenarios pupils will consider later in the lesson, to remind them of a few area and perimeter basics. Four themed worksheets, one on diagonals of rectangles two on area and perimeter of triangles, and one on area and perimeter of trapeziums. Each worksheet has four questions with a progression in difficulty. Could be used as a carousel or group task. Plenary: A prompt to get pupils discussing what they know about Pythagoras’ theorem. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
