Year 7 have been working hard to understand and apply a 2000 year old theorem in their maths lessons. Before they were introduced to Pythagoras’ Theorem the learners practised one of their key skills: rounding to an appropriate degree of accuracy. With the use of Perigal’s Puzzle the learners were able to gain a conceptual understanding of how Pythagoras’ Theorem works. The learners are now attempting to solve worded problems which requires the use of Pythagoras’s Theorem in real life contexts. So far, they have worked in their table teams to solve problems and show off their solutions in a ‘gallery’ so that other teams can appreciate and learn from their solutions. Some learners will even have the opportunity to investigate how Pythagoras’ Theorem can be applied to three-dimensional objects.
