The Pythagorean Theorem

Students learn the Pythagorean Theorem, which states that the sum of the squares of the lengths of the legs of a right triangle is equal to the square of the length of the hypotenuse, or a^2 + b^2 = c^2. Students are then asked to find missing side lengths of right triangles using the Pythagorean Theorem.
