Scribepost for December 10,2009
Today we had to fill our exploring the Pythagorean Relationship section of our foldable.
So what we did is we talked about Right Triangles.
Right Triangles that has a 90 degree.
The parts of a Right Triangle.
The two shorter sides are called the legs.
The longest sides is called the hypotenuse.
We also had to make a right triangle by making 3 different perfect squares. So we used a 3x3, 4x4 and 5x5. We put the left overs in the 5x5 square.
Only some combinations of a side measure will produce a right triangle.
We also had to make a chart about the right angle.
So first triangle the pattern was. 9+16=25
For homework is to find 2 more combinations to make a right triangle.
Like what I did at the chart.
Sorry if the chart if it wasn't clear enough.
