: Students will explore Pythagorean Theorem using informations from Internet and following activity.OBJECTIVEComputer, calculator, graph paper and pencil.MATERIALS:1) On graph paper, draw segment AB going 5 right and 2 up. Draw both segments BC and AD going 2 left and 5 up. Draw Segment DC and describe how to go from D to C. What shape is ABCD ?PROCEDURES:2). Repeat Exercise 1 with segment AB going 3 right and 5 up, and segment BC and segment AD both going 5 left and 3 up. 3). On the graph paper, draw segment IJ going 3 right and 2 up. Draw square IJKL on segment IJ. Also draw a surrounding square whose sides are parallel to the grid lines. Calculate the area of square IJKL. Use square root tables or a calculator to find the length of segment IJ to hundredth place. 4). Repeat Exercise 3 for square MNOP, where segment MN is 8 right and 6 up. 5). Repeat Exercise 3 for square QRST, where segment QR is 2 right and 1 up. 6). Repeat Exercise 3 for square UVWX, where segment UV is 5 right and 4 up. 7). Copy and complete the table. Use the figure and your work in Exercises 3-6 to help you.
