Learning Objective
At the end of the lesson you will understand Pythagoras theorem and be able to apply it to solve problems involving right triangles.

#### Slide 2 -Tekstslide

Ensure to explain to the students the importance of the theorem and the practical applications. Give examples to help them understand better.
What do you already know about right triangles?

Who was Pythagoras?
Pythagoras was a Greek mathematician who lived over 2500 years ago. He was famous for his work in geometry and numbers.

#### Slide 4 -Tekstslide

Use visual aids to help the students visualize the time period and the location. Use anecdotes to make the class more engaging.
What is a Right Triangle?
A right triangle is a triangle with one angle measuring 90 degrees. The side opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse.

#### Slide 5 -Tekstslide

Use visual aids to help the students visualize a right triangle. Explain the concept of the hypotenuse and its importance.
What is Pythagoras Theorem?
Pythagoras theorem states that in a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

#### Slide 6 -Tekstslide

Use visual aids and examples to help the students understand the theorem. Give examples of how it can be applied in real-life situations.
How to use Pythagoras Theorem
To use the theorem, identify the hypotenuse and the other two sides, then substitute the values into the formula: a^2 + b^2 = c^2.

#### Slide 7 -Tekstslide

Provide examples to help the students understand how to use the formula. Encourage them to practice with different values of a and b.
Practice Problems
Solve for the unknown side in the following right triangles: Triangle 1: a = 5, b = 12. Triangle 2: a = 3, c = 5. Triangle 3: b = 8, c = 17.

#### Slide 8 -Tekstslide

Encourage the students to work in groups and help each other solve the problems. Go around the class to help those who are struggling.
Real-life Applications
Pythagoras theorem can be used to measure distances in a straight line, find the shortest distance between two points, and to calculate areas.

#### Slide 9 -Tekstslide

Give examples of real-life applications of the theorem. Encourage the students to think of other situations where the theorem can be applied.
Summary
Pythagoras theorem is a fundamental concept in mathematics that has practical applications in real life. It helps us understand the relationship between the sides of a right triangle.

#### Slide 10 -Tekstslide

Recap the main points of the lesson. Allow the students to ask questions and clarify any doubts they may have.
Write down 3 things you learned in this lesson.

#### Slide 11 -Open vraag

Have students enter three things they learned in this lesson. With this they can indicate their own learning efficiency of this lesson.
Write down 2 things you want to know more about.

#### Slide 12 -Open vraag

Here, students enter two things they would like to know more about. This not only increases involvement, but also gives them more ownership.
Ask 1 question about something you haven't quite understood yet.

#### Slide 13 -Open vraag

The students indicate here (in question form) with which part of the material they still have difficulty. For the teacher, this not only provides insight into the extent to which the students understand/master the material, but also a good starting point for the next lesson.
