# Q2, W3: November 1-5 Pre-Algebra Teacher Kristin Andreason 8th Grade Pre-Algebra 8 November 1-5 Focus 4 and 5: Soving Multi-Step Equations and 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 determine if a triangle is a right triangle using Pythagorean Theorem.
• Students will apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find an unknown side length of a right triangle.
• Students will draw a diagram and use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve real-world problems involving right triangles, including three-dimensional triangles.
• Connect any two points on a coordinate grid to a third point so that the three points form a right triangle.
• Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between the original two points.
