Looking for Pythagoras
In this class, kids will explore side lengths and areas of right triangles and squares. Their explorations will lead them to discover one of the most important relationships in all of mathematics: The Pythagorean Theorem. This theorem is so important that much of geometry, trigonometry and calculus would be impossible without it. In addition to learning about the Pythagorean Theorem and how to apply it to solve everyday problems, students will also learn how to 1) relate an area of a square to its side length 2) develop strategies for finding the distance between two points on a coordinate grid 3) estimate the value of square roots of whole numbers 4) locate irrational numbers on a number line.
