Do you ever wonder what the Pythagorean Theorem is and what it looks like and why? My lesson focuses on keeping the concept simple for visual, auditory, and spatial learners.  Learners can follow my lesson by watching my written demonstration using skype with my document camera, and they can do it along with me.  I also demonstrate the concept of squares using the the number sentence, multiplication of squares, as well as visualizing what the squares look like in relation to the 3,4,5 right triangle.

Lesson Objectives

  • Identify the characteristics and terminology of a right triangle
  • Demonstrate the number sentence
  • Calculate the algorithm using simple steps
  • Show the array of multiplying the squares.

Lesson Goals

Use a 3,4,5 right triangle to calculate the squares and draw the array.

Extend the lesson by using different side lengths after mastery of basic 3,4,5 right triangle calculation. I demonstrate in real time using skype to tutor more difficult concepts and algorithms.

I graduated magna cum laude from college, earning my BS in Education. I attend and learn professional development courses. I have earned certificates of distinction in many areas, including teaching reading, methodologies for teaching mathematics, and biology.
passed CORI Background Check passed for Passed background check as a Virtual Academy Instructor to students in other states.
