  • The Pythagorean Theorem: Euclidean Geometry

    Johnny Martinez Period 7th Pythagorean Theorem The Pythagorean Theorem also known as Pythagoras’s theorem is a relation in Euclidean geometry that are the tree sides of a right triangle. It’s the sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse. The equation use for it is A squared plus B squared equals C squared.The Theorem relates the lengths of the three sides of any right triangle. The theorem is named after the ancient Greek. There is evidence that indicates that Pythagorean Theorem was well- known to the mathematicians of the first Babylonian Dynasty (20th to 16th centuries BC) which would have been over a thousand years before Pythagoras was born. People say that Pythagoras discovered the theorem at least fifteen hundred years before Pythagoras was born. But no one really knows when it was founded or discovered. The Pythagorean Theorem was known long before Pythagoras but he might have been the…

  • Pythagoras Research Paper

    At about twenty centuries ago there was an amazing discovery about right angled triangles: “In a right angled triangle the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of squares of the other two sides.” It is called Pythagoras Theorem and can be written in one short equation: a²+b²=c² where c is the longest side of triangle and a and b are the other two sides. Pythagoras was born in the island of Samos in 570 BC in Greek in the eastern Agean. He was the son of Mnesarchus and his mother's name…

  • Pythagoras And Progression

    The theorem used to find the hypotenuse, adjacent, or opposite sides of a triangle is also used in Euclidian Geometry. “A” squared plus “B” squared equals “C” squared is the formula used in the theorem. For example, we are given two numbers in the sides of a triangle; if we are given the adjacent and opposite sides, and we must figure out the hypotenuse, we will be required to use the Pythagorean Theorem. The two numbers given are squared, and our third number, we obtain it from the sum of the…

  • Buried Treasure: Case Study Quiz

    call this point “B”. Vanessa will now turn 90 degrees to the right and will walk 2x+4 paces east until she is at point “C”. We have now acquired a line segment which we will call AB which is basically the line from A to B, the line segment from B to C is considered BC. However, the lines AB and BC intersect to form a perpendicular angel, and we will use line AC as Ahmed’s route. The end state of the line segments if one was to draw them out would equal a triangle. With the face that Vanessa had…

  • Trisine Functions: Definition Of Sine Ratios In A Triangle

    THE SINE FUNCTION (SIN) Sine function is an odd function. Trigonometric Ratios in a Triangle Definition of sinα in a Triangle is the following statement: For any acute angle α, we draw a right triangle that includes α. The sine of α, abbreviated sin α, is the ratio of the length of the opposite this angle to the length of the hypotenuse of the triangle. If we simplify we get a formula which says: It is shown in a diagram below. We can see immediately that this definition has a weak point. It…

  • Ex-Touch Triangle Essay

    If R and r is the Circumradius and Inradius of a non-degenerate triangle then due to Euler we have an Inequality stated as and the equality holds when the triangle is equilateral. This ubiquitous inequality occurs in the literature in many different equivalent forms [4] and also Many other different simple approaches for proving this inequality are known. (some of them can be found in [2], [3], [5], [17], and [18] ). In this article we present a proof for this Inequality based on two basic…

  • Van Hiele Theory: Freedom Quilts And The Underground Railroad

    The Van Hiele Theory applies to the article “Freedom Quilts and the Underground Railroad.” The three level of Van Hiele are used in the Freedom Quilt Activity. These three levels are recognizing figures by their appearance, recognizing/analyzing figures by their properties or components, and forming abstract definitions and classifying figures by their elaborating on their interrelationships. Students will be scaffolding as they are analyzing the shapes. At the second part of the activity, the…

  • Pythagorean Theorem Essay

    However, by the end of the week/unit, the students will receive a summative assessment to demonstrate their understanding of using the Pythagorean Theorem to identify the missing leg or hypotenuse of a right triangle. Procedure: Before the lesson (Do Now): To help the students be successful with using the Pythagorean Theorem, the students will review what it means if a number is squared, square roots, and solving expressions with single digit exponents. To ensure that the students understood…

  • Linear Equations Lab Report

    also know that time and radians both equal zero initially, we determine that the angular position, which we will call @t, equals (2pi)*k*t. The variable t stands for time and 2pi is multiplied by k to represent that k is in term of rotations. Next, we move on to finding the position of the ball on the circle. This is a necessary step in finding the initial velocity and position of the ball when it is launched. Using the rules shown in step 2 of example work we take the sine and cosine of the…

  • Pythagoras: A Classical Greek Philosopher

    in “Pythagoras”) Pythagoras is most remembered for his contributions to mathematics, principally for his discovery of the Pythagorean Theorem, which states that “the square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides,” or a^2+b^2=c^2…
