Proof Of Pythagorean Theorem Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse. The Proof Of Pythagorean Theorem learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 8.G.B.6 as written in the common core national math standards.

The Pythagorean Theorem applies to all right triangles and states that the square of the hypotenuse (longest side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the square of the two other sides, or a2 + b2 = c2. The converse of the Pythagorean Theorem is used to determine if a triangle is a right triangle. It uses the relationship between the lengths of the legs and hypotenuse to prove a right angle.
Use a dissection model to show the proof of the Pythagorean Theorem.
