Option 1 - Starts with 2 questions on 2D Pythagoras on a 3D shape - Then 2 3D Pythagoras questions finding the hypotenuse - Then a 3D Pythagoras question finding a shorter side - Then a "find the height" of the pyramid question - Then find the side length of the cube given the diagonal question Option 2 - Same questions as option 1 but the triangles are drawn for the students. Firstly with measurements and then without. > Further extension - design your own question with model answer and mark scheme for both a cuboid and a pyramid. Template sheet provided for students to work on. > Full solutions (same for both sheets) > Plenary - showing the 3D Pythagoras formula and where it comes from

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 3D problems

A complete lesson on using Pythagoras’ theorem for 3-dimensional scenarios. Activities included: Starter: Two questions involving a spider walking along the faces of a cuboid. For the first question, pupils draw or use a pre-drawn net and measure to estimate the distance travelled by the spider. This leads into a discussion about finding exact distances using Pythagoras’ theorem, followed by a second question for pupils to apply this method to. Main: Highly visual example and quick questions for pupils to try on finding the space diagonal of a cuboid. A set of questions with a progression in difficulty, starting with finding space diagonals of cuboids, then looking at problems involving midpoints and different 3D solids. An extension where pupils try to find integer dimensions for a cuboid with a given space diagonal length. Plenary: Final question to discuss and check for understanding. Printable worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!
