This site should only be used as a check for problems that have already been worked out and/or attempted to complete.

 

It is quite simple to navigate; however, students only have to plug in number, and they are given a solution. Again, this is a great recourse to serve as a check to work that has already been completed, but students should not use this to complete an assignment because they do not have to do any of the work.

 

Even so, it can still be beneficial. The information is current, relevant, and credible. After attempting to plug in numbers to generate a solution, I found that solutions are also accurate.

This tool is used for aiding in students to check their work once they have solved for the Pythagorean Theorem and showing their steps.

Pytagoras proved the theorem in geometry that states that in a right-angled triangle the area of the square on the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares of the other two sides—that is, .

This resource is current and relevant to students in middle through high school. The info is grade-level appropriate, and it fits the needs of the intended users. Quia is published by a credible site. I have used it my classroom a number of times, and I can rely on it to have accurate content. The information is accurate and also provides different types of questions: short answer, multiple choice, and T/F. This is valuable standards, assessments, and standardized tests have been changed in format and rigor. The resource provides practice for solving problems using Pythagorean Theorem.
