Unit of InstructionFocus 4: Pythagorean Theorem
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.8.G.2.6

Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.

MAFS.8.G.2.7

Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.

MAFS.8.G.2.8

Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will be successful when:

Standard MAFS.8.G.2.6

  • demonstrate the relationship of the three side lengths of any right angle by the use of visual models.
  • apply algebraic reasoning to relate the visual model to Pythagorean Theorem.
  • determine if a given triangle is a right triangle using Pythagorean Theorem.
  • explain a proof of the converse of the Pythagorean Theorem.

Assessment Limits:

  • For the converse, use only perfect roots.

Standard MAFS.8.G.2.7

  • apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find an unknown side length of a right triangle.
  • draw a diagram and use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve real-world problems involving right triangles, including three-dimensional figures.

Assessment Limits:

  • If the triangle is part of a three-dimensional figure,a graphic of the three-dimensional figure must be included.
  • Points on the coordinate grid must be where grid lines intersect.

Standard MAFS.8.G.2.8

  • connect any two points on a coordinate gird to a third point so that the three points form a right triangle.
  • apply the Pythagorean Theorem with the characteristics of a right triangle to find the distance between the original two points. (the distance formula is not required.

Assessment Limits:

  • If the triangle is part of a three-dimensional figure,a graphic of the three-dimensional figure must be included.
  • Points on the coordinate grid must be where grid lines intersect.
