Grade 8 - Shape and Space
Standard 8.SS.1 - Practice using Pythagorean Theorem to find the hypotenuse of a right triangle.
Develop and apply the Pythagorean theorem to solve problems. • Model and explain the Pythagorean theorem concretely, pictorially, or by using technology. • Explain, using examples, that the Pythagorean theorem applies only to right triangles. • Determine whether or not a triangle is a right triangle by applying the Pythagorean theorem. • Solve a problem that involves determining the measure of the third side of a right triangle, given the measures of the other two sides. • Solve a problem that involves Pythagorean triples (e.g., 3, 4, 5 or 5, 12, 13).
