#Made4Math - Pythagorean Theorem
Of course, the one place I didn't look was in my OWN FILES!
In my defense, the last time I taught Geometry was 2008 and out of a totally different textbook. This was before I found the MTBoS, before I knew about Interactive Notebooks, etc. To make it more difficult, I gave away all of my paper "master" copies a few years ago and my electronic files are labeled in the oh-so-helpful naming system such as "0708 L5.4 Activity". At the time, I was pretty textbook driven, so that naming convention worked.... Now, now so much :)
So last week, I tweeted out to the MTBoS to see if anyone had a Pythagorean Theorem Question Stack. If you don't know what a Question Stack is, it's kind of like an "around the room scavenger hunt" or "loop" activity, except it is at the student desks.
I wanted to do some PT word problem practice and had resigned myself to having to make a set this weekend and laminate them for today. But in a last ditch effort, I decided to look through my archives and low and behold, I found a set of cards in my own files!!
I do not claim ownership of these problems and honestly, I couldn't tell you where they even came from because I typed this back in 2007-08 school year! But, I thought it might come in handy for someone else :)
Click HERE to download the cards. Print them 2 sided and cut apart! :)
