The Pythagorean Theorem: Square Areas (Mathematics Assessment Resource Service)

This is one of many resources produced by the Shell Centre at the University of Nottingham for the MARS project in the USA. There are comprehensive teacher notes and excellent student resources. This lesson examines Pythagoras' Theorem using squares on dotty paper; it goes on to look at proof. The teachers’ notes are particularly useful to anyone wishing to get to grips with the big idea(s) behind the topic.

Topics: Pythagoras

Level 2 Shape and space - Pythagoras’ Theorem (Nuffield Foundation)

This resource is from a collection of activities aimed at level 2 FSMQ. You may need to scroll down the page a little to find the work on Pythagoras. The resource includes teachers’ notes, students’ sheets and a powerpoint. This is a nice introduction to the concept.

Topics: Pythagoras

Geometry (National STEM Centre)

This resource is from the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching. It is designed to improve confidence in mathematics . Each section offers an overview of a particular topic and the key issues that will be covered, as well as highlighting some common misconceptions. Worked examples are provided to support learning and these are followed by focused exercises to practice skills. Activities to reinforce learning and offer extension opportunities are also supplied, as are topic related tests. Topics include in part A - Measuring Angles ? Line and Rotational Symmetry ? Angle Geometry ? Angles with Parallel and Intersecting Lines ? Squares and Triangles ? Pythagoras' Theorem ? Scale Drawings ? Constructing Triangles and Other Shapes ? Construction of Loci and in part B - Rotational and Line Symmetry ? Symmetry of Regular Polygons ? Special Quadrilaterals ? Sam Loyd's Dissection ? Overlapping Squares ? Interior Angles in Polygons ? Lines of Symmetry ? Pythagoras' Theorem ? Posting

Topics: Various including Pythagoras' Theorem
