Activity: The Pythagorean Theorem--and More
Go to: http://education.ti.com/.../Activity.do (opens a new window)
Description: In this activity, students construct a triangle and find all angle and side measures. They practice dragging the vertices to form certain types of triangles, and then they confirm the Pythagorean Theorem for right triangles: a^2 + b^2 = c^2. Moreover, they discover the types of triangles that occur when c^2 < a^2 + b^2 or when c^2 > a^2 + b^2.
