Lesson Plan:

Topic: Pythagoras Theorem Objectives: -Students should be able to recognize and explain the Pythagoras Theorem -Students will be able to solve simple arithmetic problems using the theorem

Materials needed: -Whiteboard -Pen -Board markers -Student worksheets in math

Procedure:

1. Introduction (10 minutes): -Introduce the Pythagoras Theorem: “Today we are going to look at the Pythagoras Theorem. Who can tell me what they already know about it?” -Explain what the theorem is and why it’s important: “The Pythagoras Theorem is a way to calculate the length of one side of a right triangle from the other two sides. It is used in all kinds of everyday situations like engineering and surveying.”

2. Guided practice (10 minutes): -Go over the theorem and how it works: “The theorem states that in a right triangle, the sum of the squares of the two shorter sides is equal to the square of the longer side.” -Present some practice exercises with students to answer: Questions -What is the Pythagoras Theorem? -What equation represents the Pythagoras Theorem? -When would you need to use the Pythagoras Theorem?

Exercise: -Draw a right triangle on the board and have students label the sides. Ask the class to calculate the length of the longest side using the theorem.

1. Independent practice (10 minutes): -Give the students worksheets in math to practice working on the theorem themselves with problems.

2. Summary (5 minutes): -Review the lesson and the concepts discussed: “Today we learned about the Pythagoras Theorem and how it can be used to calculate the length of one side of a right triangle from the other two sides. Do you have any questions?”
