Pythagoras Scribe Edit

In preparing for your parent quiz we need to add some information to your Pythagoras Post.  Here are the instructions:

  • add the label pythagorean relationship to your post
Now add the following three questions.  The easiest way is to copy them to a piece of paper and take photos of them.  Upload the photos to your post.

1. Answer in a short paragraph and with diagrams

2. Solve for the missing side length.

3. Is this a right triangle? Prove it!!!

For those of you who have not done a Pythagoras post yet you need to choose 3 questions from the text book and explain your answers.  Please add the label pythagoras to your post.

Someone needs you!

Plaza Middle School has sent us a video and wants our help.  Check out their word problem!

Please leave your solutions behind here at the blog and at their yourbe site.  The room that leaves the most solutions behind will win a prize on Monday! For those of you who are really "lazy" please cut and paste your blogger comments into their youtube feed.

Good luck
