Unit 7, Lesson 18# Applications of the Pythagorean Theorem

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students apply the Pythagorean theorem to real-world and mathematical problems in two dimensions. It is recommended that students have access to a calculator as they work through the exercises. However, it is not recommended that students use calculators to answer the questions but only to check their work or estimate the value of an irrational number using rational approximation. Make clear to students that they can use calculators but that all mathematical work should be shown.
