    Unit 1B Title: Pythagorean Theorem

    Unit Overview: 
     
    This unit will explore two main ideas: The Pythagorean Theorem and square roots. Students will also review and make connections among the concepts of area, distance and irrational numbers. 
    Unit Objectives:
     
    By the end of Unit 1B, all students will be able to:
    • apply and prove the Pythagorean Theorem to real world problems
    • find distance on the coordinate plane
    • solve geometric formulas using given measurements

    Focus Standards:
     
    CC.2.3.8.A.3 Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems

    M08.C-G.2.1.3 Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.
