More About Algebra: Pythagoras' Theorem

Year 6


SKU: M6IL30183

Introduce your pupils to Pythagoras' Theorem, and teach them how to use it to find missing lengths of sides of triangles. This is the third of five lessons in 'More About Algebra' for Year 6, and it builds upon your children's emerging knowledge and understanding of algebra.

The included slides clearly explain how Pythagoras' famous theorem works, and how they may use it themselves by finding the square of the two known sides. With the included, differentiated activities and Pythagoras worksheets, your whole class will practise finding missing lengths of right-angled triangles. Some children may even apply what they have learned to help them find the total perimeter of compound shapes which are partly comprised of right-angled triangles.
