We had a 10 minutes formative assessment over the basic algebra of the Pythagorean Theorem (did you get what we learned last time?).
Students finished up their previous HW #16 and we shared answers, issues, and strategies.
We learned again how to use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine if 3 sides make a right triangle, or obtuse, or acute; and therefore, what is a triple? (Three whole numbers that make a right triangle.)
Most of class was devoted to sketching stories that are "solved" with the Pythagorean Theorem: taking sentences that describe a situation, translating to a good sketch with labels, then solving with Pythagorean Theorem and possibly an area formula.
This work was turned in, or to be finished for homework.
There was a 4 pt homework quiz on HW #16 at the end of class.
The only homework was to finish the word problem handout. Several students finished in class. It is attached below if you have lost it.
