Unit of InstructionFocus 7: 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 are successful when they can…

  • 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.
  • apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find an unknown side length of a right triangle.
  • identify the hypotenuse as the side opposite the right angle in a triangle.
  • draw a diagram and use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve real-world problems involving right triangles, including three-dimensional figures.
  • 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 with the characteristics of a right triangle to find the distance between the original two points.
