**Web 2.0 Lesson Plan**

1. **Title**: Pythagorean
Theorem: What’s Your Angle Pythagoras?

2. **Grade
Level/Subject**: 8^{th} Grade Math

3. **Prerequisite
Knowledge**: Perfect vs Nonperfect Square Roots; Simplifying and Estimating Radicals;
Solving two-step equations; Order of Operations (PEMDAS); Integer Rules

4. **Approximate time
for the entire lesson**: 1.5 weeks

5. **Learning Objectives**: The purpose of this lesson is for students to discover and formalize the
Pythagorean Theorem by investigating the relationship between the areas of the
squares constructed on each side of a right triangle. Students will also apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find
missing lengths in a right triangle and solve equations involving square roots
as it relates to the Pythagorean Theorem. Students will use prior knowledge of
square roots to make connections between the concepts. By the end of the week,
students will be able to demonstrate an enduring understanding of using and
applying the Pythagorean Theorem.

6. **Relevant Standards**:

M8N1: Students will understand
different representations of numbers including square roots, exponents, and
scientific notation.

M8G2: Students will understand and use the
Pythagorean Theorem.

7. **The Web 2.0 tool
chosen to deliver the lesson**: blog and wiki (PBworks)

8. **Assessment to measure learning outcomes using this lesson**: Learning
task from Georgia Department of Education, “Comparing TVs” along with 5 real
world based Pythagorean Theorem problems.
