Why you'll love this

Each activity is a self-checking Google Sheet, themed after winter and Christmas. The image is versatile, so it can really be used at any time in the school year!

This product covers the 8th grade standard: 8.G.B.7

Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.

Students practice a series of problems, and get immediate feedback as they go. Correct answers turn green and incorrect answers stay red. As students type in correct answers, a mystery picture appears.

Added: A printable PDF of question sheet is included so students can solve the problems and show their work on paper prior to entering the answers on the pixel art google sheets. (This part of the activity is optional, some teachers may choose to use the pixel art google sheet directly without this PDF).

There's no prep required. This is great for virtual or in person learning!

  • Google Sheet #1: 9 problems with right triangles - find the length of the hypotenuse

  • Google Sheet #2: 9 problems right triangles - find the length of the leg

  • PDF Answer Key
