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

A set of eleven lessons (80 slides) which could be used individually or as introductions to textbook exercises. Pupils who have been absent from school and need to catch up with work would find these useful. Alternatively they could be used for revision or for class notes
Pythagoras on a GraphQuick View

Pythagoras on a Graph

12 question worksheet which covers finding the length of a side of a right angled triangle on a graph. The questions then move on to asking for the distance between two points on a graph before finally a couple of questions asking for the distance between two coordinates on a graph. There is room on the worksheet for the students to plot the points on a graph and draw the right angled triangle if they need to. There is a PowerPoint presentation included which has all the questions on it as well as an answer slide to facilitate self / peer assessment.

3D Pythagoras

Complete lesson on 3D Pythagoras Includes: > How many right angled triangles can you spot in this cuboid? (Really good investigation starter that helps the students visualise the triangles and is afl for your next task) Full solution provided including on the diagram. > Examples to work through - starting with 2D Pythagoras on a 3D shape and progressing. > 2 options for worksheet. 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

Geometry: Pythagoras 2 - Short side & Problems involving Pythagoras (+ lots of resources)

This is the 2nd lesson on Pythagoras that follows on from lesson one, by building on the understanding of what Pythagoras discovered and finding the hypotenuse to also finding the shorter side. The lesson then looks at Pythagoras style exam questions, i.e. more problem-solving questions. Lesson 1: Introduction to Pythagoras (hypotenuse) Lesson 2: Pythagoras (shorter side and problem-solving) Lesson 3: Pythagoras in 3D The lessons include a challenging starter, learning objectives, keywords, outstanding teaching slides and an excellent cross number worksheet with answers, plus a thought-provoking plenary that will help assess understanding. I have also included an extra worksheet that I often use for homework.
